2001 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Review

This is my 4th BMW in 25 yrs, and by far the worst. Everyone claims this is a 'tight handling car'...I simply don't understand how anyone can say that. Compared to BMWs of the past, this handles like an Oldsmobile! Its so loose, that it is pathetic. The design of the car lends itself to very poor visibility. The blind spots are terrible. Within the first 6 months of ownership, the car broke down 2x, with the same problem (bad auxiliary fan). BMW was difficult to deal with during these problems. Otherwise, reliability is fine.

Best Features

I tend to like the aesthetics of the car, although the design is what destroys the outward visibility.

Worst Features

1 - Redesign to provide good visibility 2 - Tighten the feel/handling. Very important. 3 - Include some creature comforts (rear door map pockets, a direction compass, better power seats (the ones provided are the cheapest I've ever seen), etc.)
