Great car terrible tires

2013 BMW 550 Brian Stanley - Richmond, VA 06/14/2016

Bought this cross over car for my wife. Four wheel drive living room on wheels with a roomy hatch. Now those wheels..... Run flat tires sounded like a good idea right? Not so fast my friend. I hit a pot hole on the interstate heading to Norfolk VA. Several days later I noticed a blister on tire and had it checked out. I had two tires that had to be replaced and two cracked rims.... I never even heard of such a thing. Several thousand dollars later, we traded the car in and swapped for a Lexus RX350 and could not be happier. We took a $6k loss on the BMW deal.

2007 BMW 550 Nova - Fort lauderdale FL 07/21/2010

Great Car!! Plenty of power and very comfortable with the seats included in the sports package. I drive is not an easy tool to use while driving but once you have it down it's not an issue. I would certainly purchase the extended warranty for the car without it you are in trouble. The v8 is great but prone to more maintenace unlike the I6 cars.

Watch out

2011 BMW 550 Shelly - Santa Cruz, CA 07/12/2014

I bought this car lays October in Ontario CA. I was hoping for a great experience. Unfortunately I think carmax knew this was a lemon and was very happy to see it go out the door. When I test drove it it was cutting out. The salesman said it was just water on the engine. Since last October I have had it in the shop 6 times. I have had to replace 4 ignition coils, one manifold sensor and the brakes were at 7% after 48k miles. I have been very disappointed and I'm obviously a lot poorer. I would not recommend this car to anyone. I leave it in the driveway afraid that if I do go anywhere it will just break down. All I wanted was a dependable car. What I have is a nightmare. A stupid purchase.
