Problem Reported: Coolant Leak From Radiator
September 15, 2010, 10:08 PM
<p>It is not uncommon for the <a id="ce_96" class="ct_null tooltip" href="/radiator">radiator</a> to develop a coolant leak. A leaking radiator will require replacement. When a leaking radiator is replaced the entire cooling system should be inspected and if any additional leaks are found they should be repaired also.</p>
<p>Overheating can cause severe engine damage. If the engine begins to overheat it is recommended to stop at the first available location and have your vehicle towed to a repair shop.</p>
Car Review: 2002 BMW 530i

Bought it used with about 60K miles.
The cup holders failed immediately The exterior lights and dashboard display failed or are failing. The tires wear unevenly due to bushing falure. the radiator failed. the brakes cost over $1,000 to replace because they come an integrated unit. Need I go on? When it's fixed, it runs great, but if you cannot afford high maintenance, buy it new and sell before 60K miles.
