Let’s face it, there is just nothing like driving a BMW. Unless it’s owning one and being able to drive it everyday! Edmunds.com says that the 2008 “BMW 5 Series is just at home on a winding back road as it is on a leisurely cross-country road trip….[and] remains one of the best cars on the road.”
The beauty of the 5 Series starts under the hood. The 528i comes with a 3.0L 6-Cylinder DOHC 24V engine that produces 230 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque. That’s power you would normally expect to find in trucks and muscle cars, not luxury sedans. Combine that powerful engine with an incredibly smooth shifting 6-speed automatic Steptronic transmission and the BMW delivers 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg out on the open road.
Of course the engine isn’t the only beautiful thing about the 5 Series BMW. The 5 Series has one of the roomiest cabins in its class, and the seats are incredibly comfortable with 10-way power adjustability and memory settings to accommodate different drivers. The interior is trimmed in gorgeous leatherette upholstery and genuine wood grain inserts. The dual-zoned air conditioner with automatic temperature control and rear vents ensures that everyone has a comfortable ride, and helps to keep arguments to a minimum. For music lovers, you’ll enjoy the iDrive electronic system featuring an AM/FM in-dash single CD player with Sirius Satellite capability, auxiliary audio input, and 10 speakers. And on the sunny days, you’ll enjoy being able to open up the power moonroof and letting the sun shine in.
The beauty of the BMW 5-series continues right down to the safety features. The 4-wheel disc ABS brakes with Brake Assist, Electronic Stability Control, Front & rear anti-roll bars, Low tire pressure warning, Rear child safety door locks, LATCH child seat anchor system, and Traction control work together with you to avoid accidents. Other features that won’t be found in other cars include Fully automatic headlights, Wipers that automatically adjust to speed and rain, and Reverse tilt passenger mirror that provides a view of the curb when the vehicle is in reverse. There’s also Steering wheel mounted audio & cruise controls and Bluetooth handsfree communication system to help you keep your hands on the wheel. If you are ever in an accident, the BMW has Dual front impact airbags, Dual front side impact airbags, Overhead airbag, Power Memory active head restraints, 3-point safety belts at all seats, and even an Emergency communication system to keep you safe.
