2001 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
After driving this car for one year, I will only buy BMWs from this point on. The car is not only fun to drive, it is reliable. After owning American and Japanese cars, it is apparent that German engineering is the best. BMW's offer both performance and superior build quality. About the only problem I have experienced with this car is the scheduled maintenence indicator, which can be annoying and expensive to get rid of (you have to spend a lot at the service department or buy a service tool.) I would definitely suggest buying this car to anyone looking for a luxury/sport sedan.
Standard transmission in a 6 cylinder, excellent sound system, great brakes and superior acceleration. Handling is top notch, and the mechanical build is fantastic.
More standard features-cruise control, power seats, and genuine leather are considered options. Cars at this level should have these standard features if they are a genuine luxury vehicle. Lose the service indicator.
