Traded it in for my current vehicle. These cars have problems and require repairs. The wagon features the same performance-oriented engineering as the sedan, but also comes with a cargo cover, cargo net, and under-floor storage compartment. We are hoping to install the car seat in the center been told that's the safest position - is one car more suited to a center positioned car seat than the other? All factory books are in the glove box. This car would be my daily commuter, so reliability is a must. Car was just detailed inside and out. But everyone have their own preferences.
The 5 Series wagon comes only in all-wheel-drive 535i xDrive form. I have 2 New Key Fobs + Keys + 1 Valet key. If you cant open the hood on the weekends. If doing it your self is to much hassle. The accident-free Carfax reports one owner, 20 service history records, and regular service intervals throughout the years. Tried to find info from the safety rating agencies but didn't get much information there 3. They say that the system is far too complicated and if you're not a computer technician, then good luck trying to figure it out.
I was immensely impressed, so were other motorists, some of whom took photos of the disparity. Bought the car about 4 years ago when it had about 30k miles on it. Passenger side mirror is cracked but still is heated and auto-dims. About a month ago I did a 0-60 test and it came in under 6 seconds. The 528 models are offered with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, as are the 535 models, while the 550.
Although, I'm hearing horror stories about the fuel injector problems, fuel pump problems, and general maintenance issues. The 528 models are offered with rear-wheel or all-wheel drive, as are the 535 models, while the 550 is only available with rear-wheel drive. Its sedan counterpart can be had in 528i, 535i or 550i configurations; the 528i and 550i are covered separately in Cars. Reviewers seem to be complaining about the fact that iDrive has to be used for anything other than audio or climate control. No water in the trunk, batt compartment etc but maybe enough water to make the truck rather damp. All these maintenance and problem stories are starting to worry me; I don't want to have to spend some ludicrous amount of money on repairs and nor do I have the time.
We had a few ergonomic quibbles, mainly with the placement of the cupholders, as the climate controls can be a pain to access when the cups are held. This wagon is far from the stereotypical boring ride some drivers experience with other vehicles of this type. If some dash lamp isn't out or some other electrical issue isn't plaguing the car then it isn't a Volvo. My indie said that since I got 100+K miles out of the original rotors, why go with something less? Includes factory side rails, but no rack. Cupholders pop out of the dash instead of sitting in the center console, meaning my coffee thermos or Diet Coke rests right above the stereo.
Although, I'm hearing horror stories about the fuel injector problems, fuel pump problems, and general maintenance issues. Is one car safer in a collision than the other? The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has crash-tested the 5 Series sedan, but not the wagon. I've owned it since it rolled off the showroom floor. The eight-speed automatic also performed ably for the most part, but several editors reported a lurching and jerky operation, especially when accelerating normally from a stop. It has been very reliable and not too crazy on maintenance, but do expect a new Valve cover gasket every 40k-50k miles. The armrest is padded in thick leather, which feels great.
Then my water pump went out at 102k, just outside warranty. Leather interior is like new as well. When I returned the car I had to actually point to the tiny scratch mark on the bumper when I returned it to Enterprise. Full winter package with heated leather seats, steering wheel, and mirrors. I have a 2008 535i with 145k miles. Volvo doesn't do a lot of turnover in their designs.
A clever night vision system is available, which helps spot and avoid animals in the darkness ahead. Any personal experience with this? Chief among them was the cargo cover that raised and lowered when you opened and closed the hatch. The 5-Series is offered with three different engines--designated by the models 528, 535 and 550. Leather interior is like new as well. They shrugged and that was that. Comfort Access + Key Fobs work as they should.
These are generally used to keep pets safer in back, and also to keep them from drooling on your leather. You could also spill coffee on the new iDrive controller, which happens to be one of the few changes to the 2009 model. This all-wheel-drive wagon is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3. Technology is also a strong point in the 5-Series, with performance and safety standouts like Active Steering, Active Roll Stabilization and a night vision system. I would consider doing the same preventative maintenance as mentioned above; my question is which would give me less of a headache in the coming years, or are they basically the same mechanically? It doesn't offer the commanding view of the road or the interior space of the X5 or the bizarro world appeal of the X6.
That's a similar decision I had to make with my previous car, a Nissan Maxima. But with the settings sharpened, it didn't roll over and play dead either when we got a hankering to get busy behind the wheel, which admittedly wasn't often. All factory books are in the glove box. How are the front and rear brakes?. Comfort Access + Key Fobs work as they should. Hi everyone, I have a 2007 550i and I'd like your help. If you cant open the hood on the weekends.
