Pros: "Quiet, comfortable, AWD, it's a BMW!"

Cons: "Maintenance costs, stereo, no Bluetooth Stereo"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"We purchased our 2006 525xi as a Certified Pre-Owned from a BMW dealership in 2008. I can barely tell that we're not the first owners of this car. The only thing I honestly have to complain about is the fact that repairs can be costly. The sound system isn't the best out there, and there's no place to plug in a phone or iPod, and Bluetooth doesn't allow you to stream audio. The AWD works great, though, and it is a quiet car. The coating on the faux wood trim has started to become dull, but I haven't tried polishing it yet. The iDrive system can also be slow to respond at times. But overall, a nice family sedan, which is what we purchased it for."

"Car is a bit under powered, but it is truly a joy to drive. I have 165k miles on it with nothing more than routine maintenance and a water pump. Great car, very reliable, solid quality machine. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get into the BMW market cheap."
