So happy we chose this car
By crosbydog1 on
2014 BMW 3 Series 328d xDrive 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 8A)
We were in the market for a fuel efficient car that can haul our two German shepherds, plus myself and my wife, plus baggage.
We have owned our 328d derive wagon for 6 months now and I have averaged 38.8 mpg.
Average! And I have a lead foot...
If I put it in Eco Pro mode and cruise on the highway I can average nearly 50mpg.
And the car is still a blast to drive.
Does great in snow as well.
It doesn't pin you to your seat like a 6 cylinder Beemer, but the engine pulls really strong when the turbos kick in and it's a blast to drive.
In sport mode it turns into an angry little car.
The handling really is superb.
Never thought getting 40 mpg could be this much fun.
Would additional speed settings on the windshield wipers.
Would like an option to permanently turn off the auto stop start.
I always turn it off before I start driving because it's a bit annoying.
