Review of the 2002 BMW 3 Series

  • If you've got the bucks, this is unequivocally the best car in the entry-luxury category.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Luxurious, powerful, exceptional road manners, available all-wheel drive for sedan and wagon.

  • Cons

    Pricey for their market segment, limited rear-seat space and cargo capacity.

  • What's New for 2002

    BMW has seen fit to give the sedans and wagons a facelift for 2002. An in-dash CD player finally makes it onto the standard features list. The center stack has been altered to accommodate the new automatic climate controls. Steptronic automanual operation has been altered so that you move the transmission lever forward for downshifts and backward for upshifts. Bi-xenon headlamps are on the options list so that both low and high beams can glow a cold blue and can be set to automatic operation. Rear side airbags are available for coupes and convertibles. Two new colors, Electric Red and Gray Green (and a Natural Brown interior leather) join the color spectrum.

Solid fun

by on
Vehicle: 2002 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

I purchased this car in March, 2005, CPO. At first I thought the car felt too heavy but now, I'm impressed with how solid it is. Nothing fazes this car. It goes, stops and corners at your command regardless of weather or road conditions. Now I know why BMW garners so much praise from the press and devotees. I have had one unscheduled service for a faulty sensor that was covered under the CPO warranty.




Wolf in sheep's clothing

Vehicle: 2002 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

This little rocket ship can break the sound barrier and go un-noticed by the law. Cops don't stop "station wagons" for speeding. Don't call mine a "station wagon"... it's a SPORT wagon, as in sports car. My xiT has nice manners too. My newly licensed 16 year-old can handle any situation safely, with total confidence. I fell in love with the looks at the December 2001 DC auto show. Who can resist a sport wagon with sexy lines?




Oh yeeeeeaaah

Vehicle: 2002 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

bought for my wife, but i keep finding excuses to drive instead of my 5 series. considered x5 but we really liked the way this car drived, plus wanted to avoid putting another suv on the road.




Excellent car

Nice practical car

by on
Vehicle: 2002 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)

Compared to other 6-cyl AWD wagons out there, my XiT: 1)is good value (and is fairly cheap) 2) drives very well (Audi with sport suspension, summer tires and 2.7T engine is better - but not on snow, and everything is a compromise)




Best awd car today!

The 325xi was my first brand new car and it is awesome! The first time I drove it in snowy/icy conditions I was more impressed than ever. BMW is a great car and I would buy this car twice again if I had to.
