2001 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Was a little afraid of purchasing this car up front based on what I have heard from other people about BMW's having bad electrical problems, etc. This car has been a very reliable car. No major work other than front CV joints at 110k miles, and front rocker arms at 120k miles. Other than that car has had very minor work... things like thermostat, rear brakes, and front window motor. Car actually gets about 25 mpg, not 20 which is what everywhere has it rated as. Vehicle is expensive to work on but rarely needs work. Not fast by any means but handles amazing. Mine is a manual transmission as well.
Cockpit interior design, fun to drive, great gas mileage.
Car could use more storage space (deeper center console mainly).
