BMW 5-Series Reliability

You won't find BMW 5-Series reliability information like this anywhere else. Actual repair frequencies, not just vague dots. So you can tell how much the BMW 5-Series truly differs from competing car models in reliability.

These stats have been promptly updated four times a year, to much more closely track BMW 5-Series reliability as the cars age. Others tell you how reliable the BMW 5-Series was a year ago, when the cars were a year younger and had 12,000 fewer miles on them. Only TrueDelta tells you how reliable the BMW 5-Series has been recently.
