Looking for some advice....

I am looking to buy a car later this year and have been interested in the BMW 5 series Touring. Are there any years or issues that I should be aware of when shopping around?

Thank you!!

Same old advice... get the latest model lowest model car (with options you want) that you can.
Get any used car checked out by a mechanic you trust before plunking down your cash ;0)

While reading the threads here I can tell you that a maintenance history would be valued most.
I'm not worried about mileage only how the car was maintained during that time.
Good luck.

Consumer Reports has a yearly look at good and bad models of most vehicles. You might want to check it.
