Description

The BMW 5 Series puts an emphasis on the driving. This mid-size luxury sedan remains a true sports sedan in any of its variations, including the 530ix wagon and other models equipped with all-wheel drive. Regardless of engine size or equipment level, the BMW 5 Series delivers lively acceleration, precise handling and outstanding brakes. It's available with a conventional manual transmission, which is increasingly hard to find in this class. For 2007, the 5 Series offers two new options. BMW's Night Vision safety system uses a thermal-imaging camera to highlight pedestrians and animals on dark roads, while HD Radio is designed to bring CD-quality digital audio to radio broadcasts. Now in its fourth year on the market, the styling of the current 5 Series models has become familiar, perhaps less jarring than it was when first revealed. And while there are no significant changes for the 2007 model year, the 5 Series is anything but stale. Behind its kabuki-eyebrow headlights, the 5 Series is a true driver's car, with more model choices than most cars in its class. Even the base 525i boasts spirited performance, with decent fuel economy to lower operating costs. The more powerful six-cylinder in the 530i matches some V8s, while the 550i delivers true high performance by any definition. The limited-production M5 can out-accelerate, out-brake and out-corner some expensive sports cars, with comfortable seating for five. This car has just about everything you could ask for in a luxury car. It has the features, comfort and convenience of full-size luxury sedans, the sporting character of smaller ones, and a good compromise between interior space and physical bulk. In many respects, it's the benchmark for critics and auto industry engineers alike. As such, the 5 Series is loaded with technology, and some of its systems have a dark side. The i-Drive point-and-click control system, for example, takes time and energy to learn, and drivers who aren't willing to invest the energy, or those who just prefer to keep things simple, might want to look at a competitor. But those who place a premium on driving satisfaction should start their renting here.

I had a great experience with Fred’s BMW I couldn’t find the keys when I first got there to get the car but he came & assisted me & any concerns I had with the vehicle he was there to answer I would definitely rent his car again

Fred's BMW was a 2007 model with 140,000+ miles on it. I rented Fred's BMW for a one day turn around trip. We make it to our destination city and the transmission locked up on us on the interstate. We had to wait 30 minutes for it to "cool off". Car was very suspicious from that moment on. I had to drive no more than 40mph top speed the remainder of my trip to help make sure the same issue doesn't happen again. I would have given a 5 star for Fred being seemingly understanding of the situation, however i received a call from Turo stating that Fred was making a claim against me saying that it was my fault that the transmission issue occurred. Imagine that. A 2007 BMW with 140,000+ miles on the transmission and it goes out during a rental. I looked up the problem and coincidentally i found several other 07 BMW 530i owners that had the exact same issue at the exact same 140,000-160,000 mile window. here's the link below https://repairpal.com/transmission-failure-370 Long story short, if you rent from fred and his car has a natural mechanical issue, it is very likely he will attempt to charge you for the mechanical damages. Turo's investigation is still pending as i write this review

Fred's response

This is Fred. This is also my first claim. Read other reviews and you will see l go out my way for my Guests. As stated earlier Turo is still looking into why the car had problems. Filing claims is apart of Turo regardless of the reason. I'm sorry Zach feels that way. I did all l could do to accommodate him as a Host.
