Fun to Drive---Annoying Otherwise
By KMc on


1996 BMW 3 Series 328i 4dr Sedan


I love driving this car! However, several things have been a disappointment. I purchased the car pre-owned (mistake), and ended up putting $3000 into it over the first 20 months. The most expensive repair was the clutch. I would imagine the previous owner learned to drive a 5-speed on this vehicle. My 2nd mistake was purchasing from Plaza Motor in St Louis. Worst buying experience in my life. Women, avoid shopping for any car here. You will get absolutely no respect.

Best Features

The moonroof and the fast acceleration.

Worst Features

BMW needs to work on installing a higher grade stereo system into these cars. My 1991 Honda's stereo was FAR superior. BMW should work on build quality. The A-frame rattles entirely too much. Small backseat.
