Purchasing 2010 535xi
I am thinking of purchasing a 2010 535xi. It has
178,000 miles, interior and exterior perfect, was
maintained at local bmw dealership and has clean
carfax showing service. Thinking of paying about
8400 for it.
Am I looking at crazy issues?
I am actually comparing to a 2008 with 130000.
Link has a .pdf in it, read it. Unless you do work on cars yourself, I wouldn't buy a high mileage BMW.
Both the '08 & '10 models have WAAAAAAAY too many miles on them!! Average is 10,000 to 15,000 miles per year. The 2010 has been driven 30,000 miles per year and the 2008 16,000 miles per year. The '08 isn't as bad but still on the high side. My '08 Grand Marquis has 61,000 miles on it. Personally I wouldn't touch either of those cars! HTH. -Jim
That is a lot of miles the biggest problem on x models are oil pan leaks the front axle runs through the oil pan and is very expensive to repair have it checked before you buy please!
