2000 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


I loved this car until it went out of warranty 6000 miles ago - I've now spent $6000 on repairs at the dealership. An independent repair shop said my repairs are typical of problems they see with both the 3 and 5 series. And they gave me a list of other things that will likely need fixing in the near future. I have never owned a car that required so many costly repairs. I assumed the high price of the car meant higher quality and fewer long term maintenance problems. I was wrong -- and I'll never make this mistake again.

Best Features

Great curb appeal, comfy seats and controls, fun to drive. However, all the things I used to love about this car are completely overshadowed by the car's inability to reasonably survive beyond the warranty period.

Worst Features

Make the quality of the car worthy of the hefty price tag. If BMW really wants to stand behind its product, it should extend the warranty period to 10 years/100,000 miles.
