2009 BMW 5 Series 535i Sedan RWD Review
ronofoz says:
Excellant driving machine, but expensive to maintain. Also, trade-in value not what you expect regardless of condition especially when eclipsing 100,000 miles.

Looks/Style Ranked 2009 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 RWD better.
"The Genesis, for better or worse relative to opinion, looks more like elegance along the Lexus/Mercedes classic styling. The BMW, for better or worse, looks more like a sport coupe and immediately conjures the feeling that you will not be cuddled but ready for an e-ticket experience. "
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2009 Hyundai Genesis 3.8 RWD better.
"Actually, too close to differentiate."

I really love this car. It really fits the bill for pretty much everything. It can do anything from luxurious cruising, to powering around corners as a drivers car.

2009 BMW 5 Series Review
Lauren says:
Pros: -Very stylish with much lower profile wheels than the s80 -More pick-up than the s80 (turbo engine, weighs much less) -Again, much lighter than the s80. The BMW comes in at around 3,500 lbs for the 3.0 RWD whereas the s80 tips the scale at around 3,900 lbs for the 3.2 FWD -HID headlights standard -Much more exciting entertainment system (the iDrive) -Resale value is fair Cons: -My husband runs a car dealership in the area so I can say first hand that these vehicles require a ton of maintenance around ~100k (I have also owned a 2008 x5 3.0 liter) -Its very common for the vehicle to burn coolant -The iDrive system requires scheduled maintenance to reboot the computer in the vehicle and update the system so the iDrive doesnt crash (this is about $1,000 at the dealership on a good day, if not more) -Most of the interior is a lot of plastic and veneer, it glistens in the sunlight but will crack if not properly cared for -Heated seats not standard, requires climate/cold-weather package; heated seats not available in rear without specific package. -Not as smooth riding as the Volvo, suspension is more sport-tuned so the ride is a little more stiff so you definitely feel the cracks in the road

Family Car Ranked 2009 Volvo S80 3.2 better.
"2009 IIHS Top Safety Pick for large luxury sedan, that should be enough..."
