Review

This car has been all over the country, and has never let me down. I have put an insignificant amount of money into it for repairs, and it now has 240,000 miles on it and still going strong. I am planning another cross-country trip with this car in a few months!


Best Features

Reliable, reliable, reliable. Also comfortable and a great sound system!


Worst Features

Has no cup holders, which gets annoying at times. Parts are expensive (but you hardly need them!).

Review

This car is not a speedster. Gearing is for practicality (wagon and 'touring' version). This is a road car. A dream on the highway. Solid cornering. It is a GREAT car. I'm up over 212,000 miles on this car and it is still GREAT! Sample problems have been: Door latch had to be replaced. Brake light module failed. Fuel pump replaced. Got to fo the a BMW pro on this car. Parts are always from the dealer. You can feel nickel and dimed (dollar and fived?). I have had several excellent up-end Japanese cars. The power is with the Japanese but the car itself along with the driveability goes to the BMW. I NEVER expected to get hooked. I am.


Best Features

Cornering, brakes, style, finish. Trip computer is excellent... it tells you everything you want to know including performance (the miles/gal, range) to maintenance issues (which light is out, when you need the fluids checked). The car is built like a tank. You really get to like the car.


Worst Features

How can you spend nearly 40k on a car and not have a cup holder? The onboard computer lost pixels.

Review

I bought this car as a dealer demo
with about 3,000 miles on it. I've had
it for 11 years and it is still a great
car. The only major repair I've had to
do on this car was to replace the
onboard computer, but I replace my
desktop computers about every 3
years! I also had to replace the fuel
pump which seems to have been a
problem with this particular model.
The last major service cost $400.00.
I may keep it another 5 years!


Best Features

Nice industrial design. Great body and interior integrity, still feels like a new car. Fun to drive.


Worst Features

Cup holders would be nice. Improve the fuel pump.

Review

Got this car in 1997 from a guy who
babied it. Had 68k miles and was
perfect and maintained on schedule.
This car rides so nice, I hate to part
with it. I have 138K miles on it and it
still drives like new. Down side is it
is so fricking expensive to maintain. I
only have it serviced by BMW. However,
it will do 200K easily and I intend to
keep it for at least another 2 years.
Some rust on the doors but nothing
serious. I have spent at least $10,000
on repairs over 5 years. But, it was
worth it.


Best Features

Excellent sound system, great cruiser, good looks, smooth ride.


Worst Features

Cup holder would be nice, i mean this car DID cost 40K new. Lower repair cost.
