Great car until it needs maintenance
By LtBill on

Vehicle

2000 BMW 3 Series 323i 4dr Sedan

Review

I am the original owner. It is garage kept and only has 71,000 miles. I have really enjoyed it - it still looks almost new. However, like other reviewers, I have had maintenance issues - all 4 window regulators broke early on (was told they are made by a vendor of BMW), both headlights and three turn signal bulbs replaced, windshield wiper fluid reservoir leaked and was replaced. Also have creaking and thumping of frame which my mechanic could not diagnose. Now I may need the bushings replaced and the ABS may also need to be replaced - over $5,000 for both in addition to normal maintenance. If it comes to that I will be looking for another car. I do not trust it long term.

Favorite Features

power, performance, styling, safety

Suggested Improvements

Components should last as long as their Japanese counterparts.
