Brake Booster failure with 53K miles
By Steffi on


2005 BMW 5 Series 545i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6M)


I am very disappointed to drive with a supposedly quality build car just to figure out it started to fail breaking while waiting in the car line to pick up my children. Unbelievable, I needed a full replacement of the brake booster and the brake Master cylinder after only 52K miles. Good luck to all of you driving this car which almost became a liability for me. That will be my first and last BMW ever.

Best Features

Looks good and drives nice but fails to break, so I would rather drive an ugly car.

Worst Features

Fix the break system before you go to market with this junk.
