2014 5 series maintenance

Asked by May 27, 2017 at 11:12 AM about the 2014 BMW 5 Series 550i xDrive

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

What mileage is too high when considering buying a 2014 BMW 550 or
535(same year)? Is there a huge difference in maintenance between the two
and how does all wheel drive affect maintenance as opposed to rear wheel
drive? Thank you

Avg. mileage in the US is around $15K a year. BMW has a warranty for 4 years 50K miles, so if the vehicles you are looking at are above that, consider picking up a warranty. AWD has more parts like transfer case and axle shafts and requires more maintenance.

Stay away from the 5.0 L. The V-8 is noticibly more in maintenance costs expecially if you start to get a bunch of miles on it. If you wan to keep the vehicle the valve timing chain guides are a pain to replace, which means more time to do the job and cost more money. The straight 6's require less expensive maintenance and if maintained should not need chain guides for a long time. 15K miles per year are an average ask for maintenance records if there are any. You should research standard maintenance costs for brakes, transmissions, average engine anti-knock sensors, ETC. The X series vehicles seam to require more than usual maintenance than other BMW's or other SUV's.
