1997 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan

Review

We bought our 328i used with 44K miles after having it checked out by BMW shop. The driving experience is beautiful with all the power I think is necessary. The automatic is flawless in it smoothness. The engine begs to be driven. The greatest drawback to this car is the repair bills which seem to happen far too often. Parts are not cheap!!!!! Do not buy this model or brand of car unless you can get a warranty from BMW. $1500 worth of service each year is obscene, particularly in the days of Acuras, Passats and Lexus. I will miss the driving experiance, but my retirement will not, I'm afraid, allow another BMW in my life!

Favorite Features

There's nothing quite like it in driving the 328. And in today's world of jellybean cars, it's probably among the most handsome in it's simple architecture and styling.

Suggested Improvements

The reliability of the complex sensors and electrical apparatus needs attention. I hope in later models these items were addressed.
