Thumbs up AAA's experts choose BMW 5 Series as 2003 Auto Guide Award Winner

Woodcliff Lake, New Jersey, March 6, 2003...

The BMW 5 Series was named a AAA Auto Guide award winner
in the $35,000 - $40,000 category. This is the second year in a
row that the 5 Series has won this award, and the fifth time
that AAA has awarded the 5 Series. AAA Auto Guide ratings for
each vehicle are based on comprehensive reviews conducted
for AAA Auto Guide: 2003 New Cars and Trucks, an annual book
of new vehicle evaluations. The book features ratings on vehicles
ranging from sports cars to minivans. Each vehicle receives up
to 10 points in 20 different categories for a maximum of 200
points. Now, seven years after production first began in March,
1996, the 5 Series is still selling robustly and receiving numerous
accolades from the automotive press. In 2003 alone, Money
Magazine presented BMW with "Best Luxury Car" for the 5
Series, Automobile Magazine presented an All-Star award to
the M5 for Best Sports Sedan, and Wards Auto World bestowed
upon BMW the thirteenth consecutive 10-Best Engine Award for
the 3.0- liter engine which powers the 530i. Further, AMES Award
LLC, the auto industry's leading authority on environmental
performance, heralded the 5 Series as an environmentally safe
2003 model year product. In a recent Car and Driver comparison
test of seven similarly-priced and equipped semi-luxury four-door
cars, the BMW 530i finished second, even though it is the oldest
of the seven cars in the comparison...
