2010 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

BMW 528i, power is adequate and gas mileage is excellent for car of this size. Truly wonder machine on road, feels glued, people slow down on turns I do opposite and car does not complain! It truly deserves ultimate driving machine title.


Best Features

Handling, gas mileage, exterior design,comfort,no road noise (528i does not have run flat so less noisy)

More torque and horse power

2010 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

My first BMW and I love it. Thank goodness the iDrive has been updated. I read the horror stories but with the nav it is so easy, keeps your focus on the road not the dash. The car handles well on all roads, takes curves nicely, steering is easy. AWD did a great job with the snow we had in the Northeast US this winter. I am very pleased with the gas mileage, my last car, an STS, only got @ 18 mpg. I am averaging 23 mpg with the 528ix. The interior is roomy and comfortable. Even my very tall husband can easily get in and out. Only had the car 7 months and am really enjoying it.


Best Features

iDrive. It's easy to "navigate", no pun intended. Very user friendly. Comfortable seating. Park assist is helpful. Trunk space is vast.


Worst Features

Cup holders, what's up with these things? Flimsy and in poor locations.

2010 BMW 5 Series Sedan 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

I was bit concerned with cost of this vehicle as it is more pricy than competitors. After driving it for 2 months and doing test drive for other competitors (Lexus, Audi, Infiniti) it is worth it! Solid handling and performance. The car challenges sharp turns and does not lean. 535i is a rocket on wheels,Turbo engine is a piece of art, excellent fuel consumption despite the engine size and power. Too early for reliability feedback but no issues so far


Best Features

Turbo power, acceleration you will hear twin turbo growling sound. Brakes are responsive and powerful, road feedback. Handling at high speeds BMW 535i seems to stick closer to road.


Worst Features

Run flat tires make them optional they are bit noisy.

2010 BMW 5 Series Sedan 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)


Review

Searched high and low and could not find another vehicle that compared in terms of performance and pricing. Lexus is nice, but it is a completely different driving experience. The seat comfort of my sport model remains the best i have ever owned, and I've owned the infiniti q45, j30, Lexus gs, Saab, Volvo etc.


Best Features

ipod connection with heads up display


Worst Features

Dual climate control requires manual adjustment of both zones - there is no dual setting; no a/c seats.

Review

First time BMW owner, a solid car, fun to drive, break is strong and smooth, precision steering, communicative road feel, wish had 535i, power is okay, but feel a little weak when loaded with 5 people, Navigation told me to get off every exit on NJ TPK for no reason and then get back on no matter what mode I select. One time when fuel was low, the car was driving rough and jumping on the road, stopped the car, refueled, and restart - the problem run away.


Best Features

iDrive, voice recognition, comfortable seat, programmable buttons


Worst Features

cup holder, center console
