The 5 Series was originally a replacement for the old New Class BMW’s, and received the 5 Series designation because it was their 5th model of the new era. It was also the first BMW to use the development number preceded by an E, with the first ever one known as the E12. It has always been a popular choice amongst executives, and those seeking a luxury status symbol.

Just like its smaller sibling, the 5 Series enjoyed a tune up from the Motorsport division of BMW, giving birth to the M5. The Motorsport division didn’t do things by half, and used the engine from the BMW M1, making the first M5 the fastest production saloon of its day. The modern M5 utilises an M Sport button to turn everything sporty, meaning under normal conditions it can maintain much of its luxury feel.

Common and potential problems of the BMW 5 series.

The 5 Series has been produced by BMW since 1972. Although it was released 3 years before the 3 Series, it is also had 6 incarnations. It is BMW’s second best selling model, and accounts for a large portion of their profits. In 2008 the 5 Series reached an important milestone, with the 5 millionth car rolling of the production line.

Third generation 1988 – 1996

The E34 5 Series was amongst the most reliable luxury cars on the market. It was regarded as one of the safest vehicles on the road, and is still considered as one of BMW’s most reliable models ever produced. This incarnation saw the addition of a V8 engine and all wheel drive. It became very popular amongst executives in the late 80’s, and was considered a symbol of success.

Unlike previous 5 Series it is recommended you change the timing belts at 40k miles. Especially if you have an early 518, 520 or 525.

The heaters are prone to only working at one speed, full. Make sure there is a variation in strength at different speeds.

Always try to verify mileage claims, as many of these models are now high mileage cars, but the odometer was an easy one to crack, allowing con men to adjust the mileage. Check the wear on other parts to see if any low mileage vehicles are believable.

A single fuse controls the Wipers, Windows and Central locking. If all 3 are playing up then this is probably the problem. A really simple fix.

Fourth Generation 1995 - 2004

The E39 is based heavily on the 7 Series. This model increased in both width and length. There was no 4-wheel drive option on this 5 Series. The M model of this incarnation featured 400 bhp, and was renowned for its handling. All this power and ability meant it was the first M car to feature traction control. As with the previous model this is generally a reliable car, but parts can be costly, so it is definitely worth checking all major components before handing over any cash.

The water pump and radiator can cause problems. Most enthusiasts seem to recommend an overhaul of the cooling system on older models. This includes replacing the Radiator, water pump, thermostat, expansion tank and associated hoses.

The valve cover gasket starts to get brittle at around 95k miles, and can leak.

There are many reports of sensor problems on this model, especially the O2 sensor and the MAF sensor.

Fan clutches seem to fail between 80k to 100k miles.

Rear ball joints usually wear out by the 100k mile mark.

Thrust arm bushes are known to need replacing by 75k miles. If the car has had a harder life they could need replacing as early as 50k miles.

If the car starts to produce a damp smell, or the blowers seem less powerful than they used to, then chances are the pollen microfilter needs replacing.

Fifth generation 2003 – 2010

The E60 is the first 5 Series to dramatically alter the familiar styling from previous models. It also featured many technological advancements over previous models. Although the new style wasn’t an instant hit, and both the interior and exterior were heavily criticized, it became BMW’s best selling 5 Series. This model also saw the return of the all wheel drive option. This model proved to have BMW’s known reliability, and most of the common problems are minor niggles with easy fixes.

Front and rear windscreen seal can crack in constant sunlight.

We have seen lots of reports of squeaky center armrests in the rear of the car.

The models featuring a sunroof can suffer from some wind noise.

A small rubber attached to the spring in the filler cap wears prematurely, causing you to not be able to easily open the filler door.

There have been several cases of coolant leaks caused by faulty hoses. It may be best not to wait until it happens, and get your hoses replaced to be on the safe side.

Many of the newer models need to seem their alternator replacing at about 50k miles. We are not sure there are enough incidences of this to call it a common problem, but we have seen a few reported cases.

Sixth generation 2009 – present

The F10 sees some of the more traditional BMW styling cues return. The centre console is once again angled towards the driver, to create more of a cockpit feel. It arrived to mixed reviews. Some motoring journalists believe it is too similar to the BMW’s of old and it has also been described as bland. This model 5 Series is the first to feature a hybrid model. Whilst this model is still fairly new there are the first signs of recurring problems creeping in.

Some vehicles pull to the right. Strangely for such a problem, BMW say it is caused by a software problem and they are addressing it.

There have been reports of the run flat tyres failing at low mileages. The most common problem seems to be a weakness in the sidewall that creates a bubble type protrusion on the sidewall.

Many cars that are subject to only shorter journeys seem to need new batteries. Some of these have only been 9 months old when the warning light appears.

Many complain the radio doesn’t turn off when they turn off the ignition. This is due to the car needing two pushes of the power button to shut down fully; the first push just turns off the engine.

Many have had the message “Dynamic Drive Malfunction” show up on the iDrive system. Three things can cause this, either a faulty sensor, leaking ARS hydraulic fluid, or a faulty control board.

Many BMW owners seem to suffer from annoying electrical problems. Because of the unique way they are wired the symptoms might not appear where the problem is. One customer had recurring problems with his dashboard; BMW finally traced the problem to a faulty CD changer in the boot. So the advice is to check all the electrics thoroughly, and don’t presume a small failure will be an easy fix. If in doubt, get it checked.
