Like a Tank - Safe and Reliable! by California Girl on 06/20/2010. Trim: 1992 BMW 535i (auto), Owned 5 years.
Pros: Too many things to list! It has a lot of power and has no trouble with hills whether gradual or steep. It has messages for everything from lights needing to be replaced to the temp outside if it causes a driving risk. Power everything - windows, seats, locks, and even headrests! Dual air conditioning and heating controls. This car is heavy duty and very safe. I have owned this car for over 5 years. It has nearly 240,000 milies on it and keeps on going - I love it!
Cons: My main complaint is that it doesn't have cup holders. However, I did purchase one that fits right between the two front seats so that was an easy fix. Oh, yeah, the battery being under the back seat is a bit of an inconvenience when trying to help someone else to jump their car. Heated seats would be nice but the car might be too old for that. It doesn't get great gas mileage but it has a bigger engine, so that makes sense.
Overall review: This is a great car! All BMWs are very safe but because of the weight this one, it is extremely safe. It would be a perfect car for a new driver. Don't let high miles scare you. To a BMW, 250K is like 100K.
