2009 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

The whining noise (transmission?) is totally out of character for a luxury car. Dealer insists it's normal. I don't believe it...it's driving me crazy. Be sure to test drive before you buy and listen carefully for the whine.


Best Features

Fun to drive.


Worst Features

Larger dashboard displays.

2009 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


Review

I've had my new 2009 328i for 2 months now and it's been great so far. Very smooth ride, responsive handling, feel the road, and more than adequate on gas mileage. I have to watch the speedometer at all times because it drives very fast. Acceleration from full stop could be better. In hindsight I should not have purchased in Alpine White as it shows dirt easily but after each wash, it looks beautiful.


Best Features

Very nice touch with door handles illuminating when unlocking doors.


Worst Features

Cup holders placements are intrusive on passenger side. Lack of storage in rear seat area for water bottles. Dash could be improved to reflect more luxury.

Review

I love driving this car. The best part of my day is getting in the drivers seat of my car. This car handles like a dream and I have never driven a car that is better. I test drove an Audi A4, Merecedes C300, and a Nissan Maxima. None of those cars could come close to the BMW. I highly recommend this vehicle.


Best Features

Handle, quality, and performance.


Worst Features

BMW has to increase the rear seat space in this car. BMW should also start making leather standard, this car costs way too much not to have leather as a standard feature.

Review

Overall car is fun to drive, the performance is what you would expect from a BMW car. The appointments in the car are first class, but there is one thing that I see lately, which has frustrated me, and many other people on the Bimmerfest forum's...that is a terrible whining noise coming from the transmission or differential....drives people crazy !!! I seen the same issue now on 5 Series and 7 Series cars, and BMW doesn't seem to care about this, but it totally frustrates many people that have spent a lot of CASH!!!


Best Features

Ride performance


Worst Features

GET RID OF THAT WHINING NOISE...
