A very unreliable experience
By kling994 on
2003 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
Excellent perfomance, fun to drive, very solid grip on road, very smooth, however in 2,1/2 years from purchase date, I had to stop at the dealer 11 times for repairs, without counting oil changes and brakes. I have had mostly electrical problems, signal lights burning out just months after getting vehicle. 2 engine coils, at different times. water getting into the driver side floor when strong rain, even if car was parked. door rubber gaskets had to be replaced on 2 doors, getting worn out (can you believe that..) transmission thump noise when stopping (took 2 years to fix), window switch broke off. etc.... a very disappointing experience for such a expensive and such a good brand name.
Fun to drive, excellent handling, excellent braking. very quiet ride. Engine and transmission run excellent.
BMW should get good quality parts. especially in the electrical department. bulbs, coils, better plastic for its window switches, better quality rubber gaskets for its doors.
