2012 BMW 5 Series Sedan 535i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)
Very bad. Reverse gear went out. Called towing they could not tow it. To put the car on nutral you need to go under the car. Finally went under and put the car in nutral still car did not moved. We had to forse the damn thing to go on towing with locked wheels. Nightmare cars. Interior cant touch the vents cause they break. Overall car sucks. Now they telling me i need a new transmission and car just hit 100K miles. Its like this is programmed to fail at 100K. I would stay away from this cars.

If looking for a cross of luxury & performance this is it. 4.4 v8 twin turbos gives this car surreal acceleration & is amazing considering the curb weight. This vehicle can not only blur you down the road, but can handle anything Mother Nature throws at it. Car is incredible stable in snow / rain or any inclement weather. Truly piece of mind when venturing out into NY streets with confidence. Yet, also can be a sheer brute when need be. Maintenance can be costly, you get what you pay for.

Beautiful car, but honestly it's just not worth it!!! If you find a price that is too good to be true, it's probably a reason why! So many possible issues with these cars that makes it frightening to own. From the possible timing chain issues, the fuel pump issues and coolant issues that plague these vehicles. I'm only warning the readers that may possibly purchase under the guise of the vehicle being a BMW. I've owned two other BMWs and have not had the trouble that I've had with this one. The "cost of ownership" is not what's scary, the idea of having problem after problem is what's terrifying.
