2013 BMW 5 Series
There are 2 user reviews for the 528i trim shown below
- Decent fuel economy when new
- Handling far below BMW standards; awful depreciation
Purchased As New
I leased a 2011 528i for three years, putting substantial cash up front. At end of the lease term the car had no issues at all and was 13000+ miles below the 36000 lease mileage. Local dealers said the value of the car was more than ten percent below book trade-in for that model (not to mention retail), which was well below the lease residual. So it's going back, but I am really steamed about the excessive loss in value and the dealer's attitude and lack of customer care. Don't get trapped in this car!...read morehide

- Great MPG, very Comfortable, plenty fast, Beautiful car
- Kinda quirky iDrive still, software control could be better, turbo lag
Purchased As New
I have owned a lot of high end cars and this is the best by far. I looked at all top brands (Jag, Caddy, MB, Lexus, Audi, etc) and the BMW 5 series won out (Jag was really close). Auto stop takes getting used to, but is absolutely no problem now. Only real issue is the turbo lag in the twin scroll system - but you get used to it and plan for it with no issues. The Premium Sound Package - get it! Comfort access - get it too. Car drives different from older models, but this new one is much preferred. I get mid 30's hiway MPG, 29 on the crawlways and 25 stop and go. Did not need bigger engine for little gain for the money (but all great). I love this car!...read morehide
