Why I will not buy another BMW to many problems.

2013 BMW 5 Series

I started having problems after 3 years. Car stopped in my driveway and could not get the car in neutral to have it towed in the process of them trying to get it started ran down the battery. When it was finally towed there was a problem with the engine a part had to be replaced the total was $2600. 00 which is too much when the car is not yet paid off. Also had to replace a key but I had bought an extra warranty and that was covered. I was not crazy about the run flat tires that came with the car the cannot be repaired that just have to be replaced. Thank god they were on the extra warranty I bought. I eventually replaced the tires with firestone run flats and I am so much happier. Always get warranties to expensive BMW will not be my next vehicle even though I love the style when a car stops on me that is it I do not feel safe and do not trust the car always thinking something might happen.

BMW 535i pros and cons after 5 years.

2013 BMW 5 Series

Pros: great performance for a sedan gets good gas mileage considering the weight of the car better on long highway trips. Handling is very smooth as well as the ride being smooth also. Interior leather very upscale and has been very durable. Exterior finish has held up very well over the years. Cons: run flat tires were loud (Goodyear) switched to Bridgestone much better but run flats tend to hum a little. Maintenance cost are higher on German cars and this one is no different brake jobs especially but I must say dealership work goes above to help you cut costs with promotions. This car has been very reliable had two trouble codes which were minor over the 5 years and 69, 000 miles I have put on it.

BMW is the ultimate driving machine so I will give you the safety and performance together

2013 BMW 5 Series

The very first time I drove a BMW, it was a 1993 E34 525i and was my parents'. It was black on black with an automatic, sadly, but it was still a BMW.This was only the second car I had ever driven, the first being a 1989 Honda Civic, also with an auto, as it was the car I tested for my driver's permit in. But I can remember so vividly, the sense of control that I felt in the 5er compared to the Civic. Not that the Civic was bad, in fact you'd be hard pressed to find a car that old and for that kind of money that is as fun, but the BMW just felt so much more connected. I felt like my inputs were so direct, with no lag in the response to the road. It felt instantaneous.
