YearBody/PowertrainComment
2002 4dr Sedan 225-horsepower 3.0L I6
5-speed manual RWD
requires premium gas. see full BMW 5-Series review
2002 4dr Sedan 184-horsepower 2.5L I6
5-speed shiftable automatic RWD
5 Series was terrific car but very poor on gas and used premium fuel. We knew about the mileage when purchased but this was one of the factors making us switch as we have 2 new drivers that would have kept this car driving more hours at a higher cost. see full BMW 5-Series review
