1995 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan

Review

Have owned my 325I sedan since it had 25,000 miles. Until this car hit 100,000 miles it was great both in terms of reliability and cost of upkeep. When we reached 100,000 however, that all changed. This thing is in the shop every month for something or another now: 2 fuel pumps, water pump, brakes at $500 per change, 4 sets of tires, o2 sensors, front struts, rear shocks, and tonight - just two days after the fuel pump repair - the "check engine" light comes on. In 2003 I spent $375.00 per month in just the repair costs of keeping this thing on the road. In 2004 that cost has reached $575.00 per month through July.

Best Features

Handles the road as smoothly and confidently as any car I have ever driven. It is remarkably fun and the engine woudl last forever I believe.

Worst Features

Repair costs are astronomical - everything costs at least $500. No trunk room is a drag.
