2003 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)
After three SUVs that had trouble getting to 21 mpg on the highway, I finally concluded I needed hauling capacity, not testosterone, and this little BMW wagon. It is a joy to own and drive. My seventh BMW since 1980, and the first non-7 series, I find it has enough creature comforts to be near luxury class,and the reliability is 100%. Free scheduled maintenance and roadside assistance (not that I've needed this service) are a nice plus. Couldn't possibly like a car more.
It drives like a BMW.
Hmmm... they don't bring in many of the 3-series with navigation, and I'm addicted. I always buy off the floor. So I couldn't get this very handy option. Maybe this should be a built- in feature of more 3-series cars.
