Hi Guys,

I'm a long time BMW fan but afraid of the 5 series from reading about the problems, consumer reports reviews, I Drive issues etc. I need a mid size sedan for my growing family. Drove the Infinity M 35, Acura RL, Lexus ect trying to get away from the BMW reliability problems, but the other cars just don't cut it.

I've found a 2007 530I with 35,000 miles on it.

What problems should I make sure have been addressed with this car so that I'm not constantly in the shop? I live 45 min from the nearest dealer with 3 kids and a hectic schedule. I can't afford to purchase a car with problems.

You help is greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.
