2001 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
I leased my BMW for 39 months. 45 days
into the lease I was at a parking lot
when the car surged and the engine
revved up so high i had to put my
parking brake on to control it. after
being in the shop for 30 days they
could not find what was wrong. it has
been in the shop 6 times in the first
year and a half for various mechanical
reasons. i have had transmission
problems, defrost problems, static on
the radio, i am very disappointed in
BMW and will never have another one.
when it is running it is fun to drive,
it looks sporty and has power however
the extreme maintenance on my new
vehicle has ruined the BMW experience
unless you get the power seats it is
not comfortable. i would suggest the
interior trim to be a little nicer as
parts of the plastic around the
speakers fell off in the first 30 days.
the transmission needs to be improved.
