2005 BMW still works but has small issues!

Since it is old, I frequently go to the auto shop for tune ups and filter changes. I am always filling up on gas weekly which is about 55-66$. The leather is starting to lift and tear a lot recently.

Hold value and runs well even with high mileage.

Very reliable.. Comfortable to drive.. Handles well.. Good in bad weather.. Well made.. Multiple luxury features.. Adequate room for passengers and materials.

- Colleen M

Love it/hate it - love the way it drives, hate the price of repairs.

Burns oil, have invested $1, 000s to get it back up to par. Got it for a great deal, but now it seems that everything is going wrong with it.
