BMW 525i 2007 Sedan- Very Well Made Car

We love the car. I bought for my wife and she loves it. Very solid and tight fit. Car is fast and we love the I-Drive system. I do wish it was a little bigger but could not afford the 745I. This car has every bell and whistle you can think of. Automatic wipers, lights, and seat settings. Car runs great on the highway. Very quite and solid. I would recommend this car to everyone. Saved $ 1,850 off MSRP.

This Five Rocks!

I bought my Beemer certified used from a local BMW dealership. I've had it since summer '08, and I'm loving it. I've ridden in other Fives but never imagined having one of my own. My dream came true once I realized I could get one certified used. My only issue I've had is fuel economy. I commonly hit Fuel Reserve! I would recommend this wonderful midsized sedan to anyone looking for a luxury car with great performance, handling, and comfort.

I have been a Mercedes ML 350 owner for over 8 years and was ready to change it up. After seeing the mpg of the BMW 5-Series, I was instantly sold and had to get one. I searched and searched and used other websites but cars.com helped me get the one I really wanted. Thanks again.

In my 54 years of driving and owning cars this one rates at the top. NOTHING is like a BMW. Even a used one. Maybe I was lucky but so far the car has been everything I expected. The down side will be if and when something goes wrong. They are expensive to maintain.

The car is absolutely beautiful, was priced very well, and had been serviced by Baron ever since it arrived from Germany. Everyone at Baron BMW has been great to work with, from the sales department to the financing department, everyone was very professional and full of class. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great buying experience.

Problematic Electronics

We have owned BMW for eight years and went from an X5 into this 525. We have had more electronic issues than I would have ever expected. From windows not closing to radio issues, right down to poor door seals, which took three visits to the dealer to get them to admit it was a warranty issue. We have friends that have purchased the M5 and have had to lemon the car within months. Research well before you move into this vehicle. The free maintanence helps, but getting an appointment is like pulling teeth unfortunately as a result of the demand.

Two weeks after we purchased a 2006 525i, my father was driving it and was hit by a woman who ran a red light. He spun around and the car hit a light pole on the other side of the car. It was a fairly serious accident but my dad walked out without a scratch on him. It's a joy to drive and to look at. We selected the 525 in hopes that the gas mileage would be a little better than on the larger-engine models. Unfortunately, a 2.5 liter engine is inadequate for a car of this size and the performance leaves much to be desired as a result. In retrospect, we probably would have gotten the 530i instead.
