Best Car I Have Owned
By tampafriends on
2011 BMW 1 Series 128i 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
I now have 33,000 miles on my 2011 128i Coupe with automatic.
I have not had one problem with this car.
The only time it has been back to the dealer is for its scheduled maintenance.
It is solid as a rock, and very fast!
I average almost 24mpg overall and that is after a combined city and highway average.
I have owned it since Dec 2010 and have to say I will miss it when the lease is up this Dec.
Someone is going to get a stellar Certified Used Car.
I've looked at some of the complaints here and have to say I have had none!
The power to weight ratio is fantastic.
0-60 in under 6 seconds.
The fun to drive quotient is extraordinary!
The paint chips too easily.
I was told BMW made a change in the paint to lighten the vehicle and to be more environmentally friendly.
Get rid of run flat tires!
They really do suck!
Put a spare back in and put decent tires on the car.
They are expensive and if you do get a flat they can be hard to find, especially if traveling off the beaten path.
