My ultimate driving machine.

I have never had issues with my 2016 vehicle. That is what I love about this car. Even though maintenance is included for $100,000 miles, I have not needed to utilize my service contract. BMW really is the 'ultimate driving car' when it comes to comfort and features. The driver seat curves around my body when taking turns. You do not need to keep your foot on the brake when stopped on a hill. The car knows not to roll back. There are so many features on this car that I do not use them all. The ride options vary depending on the road conditions. I love using the sport control option because I can drive like a racer. My car has all the standard bells and whistles plus too many to mention.

Sleek, smooth, and comfortable.

My car is phenomenal! It is sleek and smooth on the road, with excellent traction. It gets good gas mileage. I go to the gas station every 7-10 days. The first year the vehicle is maintenance free, and there after once a year. The car is literally problem free. It is comfortable and contours your body. All cars are loaded with sunroofs, satellite radio. And navigation.

Stable and comfortable Journey.

My car is really stable and quiet. The seat is also very comfortable. I love the feature of having a display of the backside of my car, this feature greatly facilitate the parking process. Also, the spaces in the car is big enough for us to do some minor stretch, making the driving Journey a lot more comfy.

2016 BMW 5 series with GPS and Bluetooth .

I drive a BMW 2016 5 series I love it. The seats are heated. It has automatic windshield wipers. The GPS is updated is always working. It has Bluetooth and Sirius XM radio. The mileage is nice and my average tanks gets about 380+ miles to the gallon. It is annoying the you have to pay for premium gas.

- Mia J

BMW series 5, great car, great everything!!

A few minor problems that can be easily fixed. One downfall is it takes premium gas so therefore it is a gas hog! It is a really nice cars with good features. XM radio, Bluetooth, heated seats, digital warming thermostat. I love my car, and I wouldn't go back! Going to stick with BMW!

BMW 5 - I love my car, it is fast and fun.

I have had zero problems with my car. It is fast and handles very well. I have had issues with the dealership, they suffered from lack of urgency. I contacts BMW an headquarters and they corrected the issue. I have owned a jaguar xj6 and I would select a BMW 5 over my old car.

I feel comfortable when I drive.

I like the way it drives in terms of the steering. The car also has an extremely smooth ride, and the way it handles turns- especially in sport mode is fantastic. I dislike frequent check engine lights for some non issues. However, they are easy to fix.

Fuel efficient and a smooth ride.

I love the smooth drive, the car shuts off when idling for tremendous savings on gas! It is a stylish family vehicle that everyone seems to love. The interior layout works perfectly for all my needs, garage opener, sunglasses, keys etc.. .

Safety is primary in any automobile and the BMW is very safe.

It is an upscale car with simple comfortability.

Too compact and not enough trunk space. Technology based and effective for any busy person or family on the go. Very sophisticated looking and attractive.

It goes into neutral when you open the door while driving.

It doesn't come with a spare tire so make sure you have run flat tires

Performance is great, reliability is great, comfort is ok. My old Lexus was more comfortable. The center console hurt my elbows

It's fun to drive, like they say, the ultimate driving machine.

Good gas mileage, for the power it has. It's fun to drive. No problems with. Don't care for how the radio works with presets.

I like the pin pad on the outside in case the keys get locked in the car.

It is smooth, the interior is spacious, it is just a gas guzzler, but is very durable, and it is also an attention grabber.

Buy it now before BMW goes out of business.

Go ahead. Buy one. They are great but don't drive it off road trails. Things will get dented and or break.
