No acceleration
By GNewman on


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


I had driven a 330xi for the past 6 years and loved the car. It had excellent acceleration and a great feel. The new 328xi is supposed to have more torque and horsepower but has absolutely no acceleration. The car is slow from standing to 1st and lags from 1st to 2nd. It bucks on me when going up a hill. I can feel the slow shifting in the low gears and when I make a right or left turn from a stopping position, the car haltingly moves. I am shocked at the lack of responsiveness of this car. I don't know whether I have a bad model or whether this car is simply grossly underpowered.

Best Features

Styling and feel.

Worst Features

Needs more power.

Um did you not read the edmunds review and specs on this vehicle? The 328xi has less horsepower and less torque than the 330xi........This may be part of your problem.
