Nothing but Junk by lee on 07/11/2012. Trim: 2006 BMW 5-Series 525xi Sedan, Owned 6 years.

Pros: Looks great, handles great
Cons: Too many problems. Replaced battery 3 times, new radiator at 50K, replaced air bag sensors, computer, differential, stering column, replaced defective brakes at 15K, and had the transmittion serviced at 70K because it wouldn't change gears properly. Car stayed in shop for other electrical issues more than in my garage. Unloaded it at 75K.
Overall review: Will never have another BMW. Too expensive to repair. If something broke on a weekend while on vacation, there would be no where to repair it until it could be towed to a dealership on Monday.
