I bought a New 95 525i for myslef and a New 95 Honda Accord for the wife , (What a Guy) . Milage to date on the Honda is 65k the BMW has 32k , other than routine maint.(Oil change..etc.) the Honda has NOT had one major problem , on the other hand the BMW has had several and has left me stranded on the road two times. Not counting routine maint. the Honda cost to date is ZERO but the BMW has cost me close to $6000 bucks . As I speak the BMW is in the shop AGAIN , autotrans fluid leak. I know as you read this you maybe be telling me STOP WHINING , but I see a lot of problems posted on the board... so I can not be the only one who feels this way ???
