1997 BMW 3 Series 318ti 2dr Hatchback

Review

The ti was billed as an entry into the BMW line but inappropriately aimed at college-age men. Properly marketed, it would have sold, and the new compact available here. A 63-year-old grandmother who loves to drive, I have averages 25,000 miles/year, averaging 32 mpg. Service has been excellent. I can't imagine driving anything but a BMW after owning this car. Nimble, it hugs the road, shifts like a dream, and looks and feels new after almost 100,000 miles.

Favorite Features

Nimble handling, weight, brakes, mileage, sound system, comfort (including a deceptively roomy, comfortable back seat), ample cargo area with and without the rear seats folded forward, finish, interior design including dashboard. Green, yellow, red light maintenance reminder.

Suggested Improvements

Begin importing the new 3-Series compact available in Europe.
