2001 BMW 3 Series 330i Rwd 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Have been driving this car now for two years and have had my ups and downs. First, I had to replace sensors that amounted to over $1000. Oil level problem, p. driver seat inop, dr. rear window inop, stitching on top back seat began to split, engine service malfunction, p. roof cover broken, paint on hood oxidizing. On the positive side it's a superb road hugger. Great off a dead stop, can really go! Smooth and solid ride without much noise. NO body lean or roll. Relatively small sedan, but still have room in back for two adults. Love the auto up/down windows on all doors. Okay mileage, avg 22 mpg. Bulletproof engine and tranny. Retention of value is great.

Favorite Features

This engine seems underrated in power, it can really zoom. Steadfast suspension and road handling manner. Auto up/down windows on all doors. 6 years old but ext. style remains well sought after. The exhaust is tuned just right. Certified Preowned program is great took care of most of the issues.

Suggested Improvements

Standard feature list is a lacking, no CD player, who needs cassettes nowadays? Where are the HIDs especially on a BMW? Improve build quality too many trips to service department. They all know me by name, great for P/R but a bad reflection on their product. $50 deductible ea. service, ridiculous!
