Nice car, but not perfect
By UncleCarl on


2011 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive 2dr Coupe AWD (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I like the seats, the xdrive system, idrive, etc., though there could be more storage space in the cabin. I recently got 28mpg on a trip with three adults and bags. My speedometer however reads 4-5 mph high at 70 mph, and BMW has told me that that is well within their acceptable range. I don't think I should have to resort to using a free iPhone app or GPS device to determine how fast I'm going when I dropped 45K on a car. This situation is apparently prevalent on BMWs.

Best Features

Xdrive, idrive for most controls, including radio, navigation, phone, CD/multimedia.

Worst Features

More storage space in cabin. Accurate speedometer. Navigation system in my '07 4Runner is more sophisticated.

My 2006 325i over-reads by 2 to 3 mph at 40 and up. By way of contrast, our 2003 Malibu is dead on at all legal speeds.
