2001 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Review
1 1/2 years ownership. Not my first BMW. Basic 325xi with metallic paint and single CD player as only options. Started with replacing 4 auxiliary electric cooling fans (included two very momentary overheats). This problem resolved by NHTSA recall and fitment of different manufacturer's fan (Bosch). This problem, along with poor BMW NA esponse, is enough to make me not purchase another BMW although the dealer was extremely helpful and satisfying and the car is great to drive. I just can't get over the BMW NA behavior over the aux cooling fan problem. Very very offensive.
Favorite Features
Comfortable commuting car. My commute is five hours drive, obviously not every day. 29-32 mpg depending on cruise speed. Handling is very solid and very responsive. No perceptible lag in turn response. One can oversteer until this is realized.
