Bang for the Buck
By chris on


1996 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


Had this car for over 10 years and 180,000 miles and the car is still going strong. Body is sturdy and still no creaks or rattles whatsoever. Maintenance is cheaper than my Honda since parts don't break down or rust as much. Excellent fuel mileage and very practical due to the folding seats. Excellent handling. This car can take curves and corners at high speeds. I've almost run off roads with rental cars since I'm used to how this car handles. It would have been better if this had a 6 cylinder engine, but it holds up more than repectably when pushed at higher rpms. Torque is strong at all rpms. Too bad they stopped making this model. Europe still has it with 6 cylinder models.

Best Features

- Extremely comfortable seats - Folding rear seats - Fuel mileage - Strong body

Worst Features

- Bring it back with a stronger engine - Inside finish could be more in par with higher end 3 series. Looks a little cheap
