325Ci, fun but not cheap
By killorhome on
2001 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Right from start of ownership, several trips to shop (moonroof, front passenger seat, trunk lock, body molding, O2 sensor) thank good covered by new car warranty. Car not aging well. While still looks & drives great, several sensors (MAF,PCV & steering angle) all have gone bad within 1 year. Total expected cost $1600! Not to mention several interior trim pieces (C-pillar liner, both driver/passenger window moldings & the gear shift knob are either broken or falling off!!) I got a feeling I'm getting ready for a major break down & it might be time to sell.
Driving performance. Meant to put to the test. I love taking this car on any twisty road. This car makes me a much better/more confident driver. Also exterior styling still turns heads wherever I go.
Better reliability. Not exactly Ford territory but definately expected more from a BMW. Parts & service are simply way over priced.
