2005 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This car was the first car we've ever bought that cost more than $20K and we remain in love with it 3 years later. It drives like a dream, gets decent MPG (btwn 25 and 30 mpg) and I think it looks very sophisticated for a wagon. There have been a few electrical issues since day 1 that we vaguely annoying but didn't affect performance and which have finally been diagnosed and fixed. All the maintenance and repairs have been covered by the BMW service plan which is unparalleled. We haven't had any mechanical problems at all.


Favorite Features

Looks awesome! Woodgrain dash looks very upscale. Pleased with MPG and you just feel so confident in this reliable vehicle.

2005 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

You will not find a similar package of handling, power, space, luxury and economy. Yes, it's not a drag racer, not a 48" TV hauler, not a Cadillac, not an ultra luxurious butt massage machine and not a 50mpg machine - BUT it's an extremely well executed compromise of all of the above that no other car I've driven or owned car copy. Read reviews of all competitors and you will find that they all compare with BMW 3-series - it's not a coincidence.


Favorite Features

Driving experience and handling, Sport package, H/K stereo, chassis stiffness, stering feel, looks, that smooth and powerful (for a 2.5L) I6 engine.


Suggested Improvements

Wish I could get it with the 3.0L engine, but not sold in the US :(

2005 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sport Wagon (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

One of the few wagons we tested that you did not feel your driving experience was being taken away as punishment for buying a wagon.


Favorite Features

Drives like its sedan cousin. On wheel controls and hands free are nice extras.


Suggested Improvements

Engine seems a little underpowered; could use little more spirit on the hills.
