Too Expensive to keep long term
By how many times! on
Vehicle1995 BMW 3 Series 318i 4dr Sedan
ReviewHave 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
Best FeaturesHandles 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 FeaturesRepair costs are astronomical - everything costs at least $500. No trunk room is a drag.
