My new to me 528i by An MSN Autos Consumer on 06/04/2013. Trim: 2000 BMW 528i, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: Handling of the sport package, good gas mileage, responsive engine with 5 speed, solid feeling while driving.
Cons: Typical 528i issues so far are, ABS faulty module, had it rebuilt for 300.00 all good now, aux cooling fan has failed, vanos needs to be replaced and small oil leak from filter housing. Car has 135k on it so all the items noted are expected.
Overall review: I did my homework before buying this car, looked up all the issues, used that to negotiate a good sale price. I can do my own maintenance so not to concerned with issues, ill tackle them one at a time. Big issue is with an all aluminum engine do not let it get hot. Car handles like a race car with the M sport package, fairly fast, but no dragster, really comes to life in the twisty s, don't waste money on an automatic. Gas mileage is about 30 highway and 21 city, 500 miles on a tank of gas highway. Nice car if you get it for the right price and know what to expect and look out for.
