absolute maintenance horror story
By msb on
Vehicle1993 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan
ReviewThis car has been an unmitigated disaster from the time we got it with only 20,000 miles. Although it drives very well, and has a comfortable and solid feel for a smaller car, we have sunk thousands into it for repairs large and larger. The worst was a blown head gasket at 45,000 miles! Unbelievable. Numerous motors and switches have gone out, from the window controllers to wheel bearings...stuff you'd never expect from a car with so few miles, and a BMW to boot.
Best Featuressmooth, tight ride. good mileage, decent power (except in elevations). Heat, A/c very powerful, as are headlights.
Worst Featureswe strongly feel BMW should issue a recall for head gaskets on the 1.8 liter engine. We heard from the mechanic and other owners that blown head gaskets are quite common for this engine.
