2007 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Nothing but a headache. It's been to the dealer 4x for the same problem, stalling, stalling, stalling and stalling. Piece of junk - bought it brand new, barely 13K miles. I hope BMW will see this, take your car and give me my money!! It's now scheduled to go another appointment on the same problem, stalling, squeaking, loud thug when backing up, put on manual mode and won't default to 1st gear at full stop. When will BMW take care of the stalling. My confidence on this car is below "zero". Never, never, never will buy another BMW.... unsafe car.

2007 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

Very smooth and powerful engine. Passing on 2 lane roads acceleration 50 to 90mph is quick. Engine torque allows 6th gear acceleraton at highway speeds w/o downshift. Amazing torque for 3Ltr engine. Much better than wife's Acura TL. At high altitude in Colorado I was amazed at ability to use cruise control on I70 over loveland pass at 11000ft elevation. 6spd auto trans ensures engine always in correct torque band. Brakes easily modulated and strong. Handling outstanding. Car goes where you point it. In corners sets up quickly and tracks easily. Able to corner at higher speeds with confidence. During 4000 mi trip in sept 08 averaged 30.2 mpg During trip from AR to SD, UT, CO back to Ark.


Favorite Features

Superb engine, suspension, and brakes. Leather interior beautiful and comfy. Driver controls. Cruise control relaxing on long trips. Quiet interior. Had many cars over the years and BMW's perform best of all when pushed. Wife says the damn thing drives good. Engine very smooth and quiet. 25mpg city


Suggested Improvements

Better cup holders. Radio controls not user friendly. Replace run flat tires; They make the ride somewhat harsh. When slow on windy roads trans sometimes shifts harsh. Seems to work better when in the sport mode. Original bridgestones replaced by dealer because they were noisy.

Review

Bought a pretty standard issue '07 328i sedan with heated seats, iPod, and auto... everything else standard. Have owned it for 14 months, haven't had any problems even despite my hesitation in waiting almost 13.8k to get an oil change!! Close to 16k now. Average about 21 mpg with 70% city/30% hwy, and get over 32mpg in pure hwy. Except for the fact that it's a little expensive for what it is, I am thrilled with the driving dynamics, reliability, and quality of the car. If you can afford it, go for it, you won't be disappointed. I didn't get the Sport Package but wish I had - the wheels and seats are awesome!


Favorite Features

Sound of engine. Heated seats get hot and stay hot. Door-handle lights at night. Quiet ride on smooth roads. Iconic gauges. Sound of doors closing. Innate quality.


Suggested Improvements

A LITTLE more bang for the buck - I bought this car for the driving experience, not the luxury features or "brand mystique." Still, at $35k wishing I had something like xenons or leather included as standard.

Review

The Bridgestone run-flats are a definite fault for my 2007 328i sedan - - noisy, premature wear at 15K miles, overall poor performance. BMW should make buyers aware of the "replacement before $20,000 half-price discount" (why so secretive????); but even more so should get rid of them altogether. Very poor choice for a luxury sedan. BMW should listen to their consumers and ditch the RFTs. This is my third 3 series though the first with RFTs, but will be my last if BMW sticks with the run-flats. Other than this one complaint, I love the car. Considering putting regular radials on it and putting a compact spare/jack in the trunk!


Suggested Improvements

Get rid of sorry run-flat tires!

Review

What a disappointment this vehicle has been. I now have 22,000 miles on this car and it had to have the rear differential changed, the seats had to be re-painted, whiplash on take off and various other issues. Can't lemon law this vehicle because it hasn't been in the shop enough. You would think when a large component like the differential going they (BMW) would step up and recognize the actual defect.

Bluetooth, radio, comfort
