Glad I leased and didn't buy- be careful
By djl on


2008 BMW 5 Series 528xi 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


This was my first BMW and likely my last. Was initially excited about the ride, performance, and interior (except cup holders) until it stranded me twice. One engine failure at 75 mph! Have been through 3 thermostats, computer reprogramming, and more. Had hoped to buy it initially after lease end, now I'm glad I leased so I can walk away.

Best Features

Ride, exterior, comfort.

Worst Features

Make a reliable vehicle, especially at the high price. Cup holders were meant for a Kia.
