This car is loaded with features, the value is very reasonable, if you can you have extra cash get the 535i model it’s an up dreaded model to the 528.

The BMW has a tight suspension and the performance is very good. room in the front, but if you need leg room it takes up back seat space.

Nice Appearance. — Not what I expected the vehicle to be.Though attractive in appearance, handling is more of a performance vehicle than a performance/leisure vehicle. Though brand in name is fine, in the future I think I would prefer other vehicles similar to the vehicles I own currently.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Attractive looking vehicle

Cons: Maintenance costs,expensive; back seating area poor;not family useful vehicle.

Great Vehicle! — It is a great vehicle and very comfortable and reliable. The 4 cylinder is great on gas but could have a little more pickup power. All the options on the car are great. Plenty of power once you are up to 55mph.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great on gas, great handling.

Cons: 4 cylinder

A Sports Car With 4 Doors. — only had the car for a week.... will review in a few months when i have at least 3,000 miles of driving completed on the roads. So far so good.....love the handling and the sport package it has. Still learning the onboard computer and figuring out the bluetooth contacts issue.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Onboard Computer is insane!

Cons: The price to replace a Michelin Run Flat Tire
