ReviewJunk!!! This is my second BMW and definately my last. My last BMW 325i was very expensive to maintain but more reliable than this! I bought this car new and since owning it some of the repairs have been 2 water pumps, power locks, sensors replaced, transmission replaced (almost $10,000), a wheel bearing, and the list goes on! The regular maintenance is a nightmare. I've spent over $1000 at the dealer for front brake work. My friend owns a 1999 Volvo S80 T6 with more miles and his car has been great! Regular maintenance is low and his car is very reliable. The T6 (twin-turbo) blows away BMW's V8. The Volvo S80 T6 is a much better choice!
Best FeaturesHandling is very good!
Worst FeaturesWay too unreliable and too expensive to maintain. Over $150.00 for an oil change.... and that's the little maintenance. The bigger services are an absolute fortune!
