2009 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)
Got rid of my 09 BMW 3 series with X drive. I wont miss the run flat tires, or nightmare suspension. The suspension bottoms out on bumpy New England roads and is not worthy of such a high price tag. The adaptive transmission lacks the response you would expect from a sports car. The radio is dissapointing. Filling the car with gas would cause a vacume and not allow me to fill up all the way. The dealer's response to the above was oh well that's just the way it is. Got a G37x and love it so far. Much more car for the money. Now that's a driving machione
Interior and exterior materials
Run flat tires
X drive suspension bottoms out on bumpy roads, too hard
Radio poor reception and sound quality poor
Gas tank vacume
Interior getting dated look
Too much money for what you get, just not a good value anymore
Interesting review. I'm considering a pre-owned 2009 328xi and 2009 G37x. The price point for both cars is very similar but BMW's certified warranty covers a lot of stuff. And oh, I'm in New England too.
Did the 328xi give you a lot of maintenance issues?
