    I read that and laughed at the 2002 M5 which is an amazing car but super expensive to maintain so that $1 a mile ain't gonna cut it lol

    That list in general is pretty funny

    Right?
    535D would be a good one though. Heck even the 2011 528s get over 30mpg and can be had under $22k

    I'm back and fourth between a 2008 MB GL320 (last year before bluetec) or a slightly newer X5 35D. I currently have a 335i and I'm a huge bmw fan. The X5 is definetly the more fun suv compared to the Gl but the gl gets slightly better milage, doesn't need ad blue and seems to be slightly more reliable and a lot bigger

    I think they nailed why my ratings suck when driving my 335d though:

    "It’ll squeeze more rides per hour, likely scaring the sh.t. out of the people lucky enough to get a ride, if that’s your sort of thing."

    "It’s not the most fuel efficient car in the world, but it’s a small price to pay to see an unsuspecting millennial clutch their pearls as they powerslide all the way to their destination."
