I had the registration within 3 days of the purchase which provided further piece of mind with a completed transaction. With 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, acceleration is up by 5 percent, while efficiency is some 20 percent better than its predecessor. Due to insufficient lubrication, the vacuum pump that supplies brake power assistance may fail. All-wheel drive improves stability in slippery conditions. Much as we admired the new 8-speed transmission's quick shifts and energy efficiency, its shifter is needlessly iconoclastic. My vehicle books clean trade in at 18,800 and rough trade in at 16,300 - the salesman I spoke with said in perfect condition he could offer 10,800. I could have gotten killed.
When we drove the Z4 with this engine, we noted no letup in the power delivery. As with the rest of the 5-series lineup, the steering is light and numb. Six different two-tone interior color schemes are available, and standard Dakota leather can be replaced by optional, more luxuriant Nappa leather. The recall began on December 2, 2014. The dealer stated that further diagnostic testing was required. Although the old, might have required a longer wait for the power, it at least delivered it in a smooth, consistent stream. The ride is comfortable and steady and the cabin is quiet.
Combined with weight-saving provisions, including aluminum doors, hood, front side panels and suspension components, the transmission improves fuel mileage, in part, because gears seven and eight are both overdrive. With everything we love about the smaller 3 Series wrapped into a larger package, 5 Series models like the 2012 528i, 2012 535i, and 2012 550i are the logical upgrade for those who have outgrown their 3 Series cars. I only drive the car on evenings and weekends. My car had been there 2 times previously. I had no warning light prior and am now told I need an entire new engine. A synthetic leatherette material covers the seats in base models, but premium Dakota leather is available.
The unit is mated to an 8-speed automatic. It takes a bit of training and a goodly number of false starts. All three models are offered with rear-wheel or xDrive all-wheel drive. Car is just the right size, is super quiet, and has a great ride. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The mileage is you put it on eco pro is fantastic for having this bigger vehicle. Their list price should reflect what they are willing to sell cars for! Despite being one third smaller in cubic capacity than the prior six, this Twin-Power turbo four-cylinder generates greater torque and horsepower, and much better fuel mileage, than the three-liter six-cylinder it replaces.
And more pointedly, is it dynamic enough to…. I was told a needed to replace the engine. Its an expensive car to purchase, and even more expensive to maintain. Wear and tear items such as hoses will not be covered, but key items like the engine, transmission, drive axles and driveshaft often will be. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and provided no solution. And the 5 Series, whether in its surprisingly spirited turbocharged four-cylinder 528i form, its smooth-as-glass inline-6 535i form, or its forceful, V8-powered top-of-the-line 550i, fully earns its reputation in motion. To return to Park, you press Park on the top of the lever.
Combined with the navigation option, this more user-friendly fourth-generation iDrive is contained in a large and legible 10. The vehicle did not restart and I was stranded in 10 degree temperature for 2 hours waiting for a tow. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. This is a safety problem and should not be a warranty extension but an official recall! You can only go from Drive to Reverse, and vice versa, by first pressing the unlock button. He found broken pieces of the timing guide and metal shavings inside the engine. The contact stated that the vehicle excessively overheated without warning. The dashboard is angled slightly toward the driver, while the horizontal lines of the dash add to a feeling of spaciousness for both front-seat occupants.

Clearly the four has power and economy covered. If the brute force and roaring exhaust note aren't enough, M5-specific wheels, a special spoiler, and air diffuser further distinguish it from the rest of the 5-Series. Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection provides early detection of objects and pedestrians in the night; warning is provided by the Control Display and is displayed on the inner surface of the windshield if equipped with head-up display. The timing chain on other cars is designed to last the life of the car, not 90,000 miles. All three models are offered with rear-wheel or xDrive all-wheel drive.
