BMW-Safe car to drive with your family in mind!

2010 BMW 5 Series 528i

This is our 7th BMW. There isn't another car we would buy. The way it's built to safety standards is why we stick to BMW. It rides beautiful and as far as repairs, they are next to none. If it does require repair it is a little expensive however once fixed it drives again forever. We are always given a loaner car from the dealership which is a plus. They repair it in record time. I'm very uncomfortable in other people's cars because I don't feel the quality is there. Some of them feel like riding in a tin can compared to the BMW. Which is a very heavy car. That's what we are used to. We are a BMW family. My daughter owned tow 3 series then upgraded to the X-5. Now she is looking at the new X-7 with third row seating for her family. We just feel it is one of the safest cars on the road. It's like a Tank and can take a hit! That's why we feel safe in them.

THE iconic e60

2010 BMW 5 Series 528i

With 102,000 miles on it, my 10' 528i is amazing to drive, very reliable and surprisingly good on gas for feeling like a sports car with tank like stability and smooth ride. This is my 4th. Had an 06, 16 and 18 before. I bought this one at 100,000 miles to work on and fully own each other. No other car out of the 40 cars I've owned feels like an e60. Every car has copied its iconic sweeping, flowing lines and aggressive stance. Straight 6 is a pleasure to work on. I love this car like girlfriend that wont let me out of the honey moon stage. Buy one...excerlation is smooth and exciting (going 45 you hit the top of the pedal and it clicks...all hell brakes loose to 7500 rpm and your doing 100mph in about 2.2 seconds.

Vehicle performs well. Good comfort.

2010 BMW 5 Series 528i

Very few problems with vehicle. Runs great. Electronic warning systems very effective. Tire pressure, service needs or other mechanical issues identified before. Problems occur. Vehicle handles well, power efficient, interior provides comfort. Burns more oil than expected, but lets you know when needed. Love hearted seats, seat adjustments and air conditioning controls. Navigation good, trunk space. Good. Leg room good.

Amazing feeling, little leaks

2010 BMW 5 Series 528i

The only problem I have had is leaking fluids. Transmission oil leaks, and some engine oil leaks, but is fixed with a simple gasket change. I love the steering and the way the engine is able to get up to speed, I haven't added much after I bought it. Maintenance is key.
