Review

Overall a TOTAL waste of your money...less than 100,000 miles and oil leaks/ (I Drive) went out/Transmission went out/window and headlight seals deteriorated/seemed as though every week something went south. BMW has figured out EVERY way possible to drain their customers of cash. Do your research...BMW & Mercedes have some of the lowest rating for dependability! German Junk! R.H. Thompson

Review

This is an excellent vehicle to get around in Houston traffic, good gas mileage with enough pick up to get on the highway without being run over.

Review

This car rides like a dream little to no problems. I had this car 5 years and it was almost maintenance free besides the normal oil change, brakes and fuel and fluid flush. This car is a must buy if you want a great driving and looking BMW for a great price.

Review

My 2nd 5 series in 7years; This car is fun to drive,power and performance cant be matched, but it comes at heavy price. Oil leaks,check engine signs,transmission glitch all expensive repairs occurring before 100k. All repairs average $1200, because of the name BMW.l was disappointed as this was my second BMW ,l will not recommend it .
