1997 BMW 3 Series 328is 2dr Coupe

Review

Bought our 328i coupe certified 3 years ago with 49,500 miles on it. Within 1 year, "certified" didn't cover the frnt brakes ($495)or back brakes ($520). Rock marks on hood were covered with touch-up paint that washed away after 6 mos. It looked so bad that we replaced the hood for $350. On-board computer and Check Engine lights come on = $50 co-pay just to have it looked at. We have put about $2600 in maintenance into this car, not including oil changes. With $5000 down pmt and $300 per month payments, that is just too much money to spend for three years. Lease is up next week and we are not buying because I can't handle more maintenance costs.

Best Features

Heated seats, handling, fast pickup, 16" tires, styling,

Worst Features

Rearview mirrow placement blocks windshield view; On board computer is a money maker for the dealer service department; Light grey leather interior gets dirty REALLY fast; Maintenance and parts cost.
