2011 BMW 5 Series Sedan 528i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 8A)


Review

I have had two 528 sedans in my life.
The first was a 2000, and the second was a 2011.
I picked both of them up at the facility in SC and drove both them to CA
Lotsa' fun was had both times.
The 2000 over the
time I owned it was great... not a lick of trouble.
The 2011 was more disappointing than my first wife.
The first issue was those useless tires, one of which failed 3000 miles from home causing me to have to spend three nights in a hotel while a dealer ordered a replacement.
Unacceptable!
The next issue was the computer telling the power steering to stop working.
Another
computer glitch finished me.
I traded for a 2011 Crown Vic.
I'm much happier.
Hitler was Bavarian too.

Review

This is my third BMW 5 Series and I'm afraid it's my last...... The transmission hestitation at low speeds is absolutely maddening. It's much worse than any turbo lag. I wish i still had my 2008 528i. I've taken it to the dealer three times and was told "it's just the nature of the beast and there is nothing we can do". Sure wish I would have read about the conerns posted here before I leased this car for 36 months. Four months and four thousand miles of misery. Doubt I can last. My new Bimmer is a Bummer. Any ideas?
