Review

This car was bought used which saved
quite a bit of money. It is very quiet,
comfortable and very easy to shift this
5-speed. It is very enjoyable to drive
and has great acceleration and
handling. The A/C and Heater work very
quickly. The backseat leg room is good
and trunk space is plenty.
Maintenance - the thermostat has been
replaced 3 times at no cost and the
water pump was replaced after 5 years.
The scheduled maintenance for BMW's is
a bit pricey but they take care of so
many items at one time to keep the car
running well.


Best Features

Besides the driving, without a doubt, the seat heaters and the heated steering wheel is my favorite feature. It doesn't get very cold in Houston but when it does the heat is instant and comfortable. The heat is also useful for lower back pain and arthritis in hands.


Worst Features

The flimsy broken cup holders are a poor design.

Review

Best car I have ever owned! Not one
problem in 60,000 miles. Gets 30 mpg on
the highway and 25 to 27mpg just running
around. The guality is superb and the
car is worth every penny! It rides and
drives just like it did when new. 80 mph
feels like 55 mph. No wind noise and
SOLID at high speeds.


Best Features

Just drive one and you will know! You will never go back to your old vehicle!
