My Terrific ti
By Joan on


1997 BMW 3 Series 318ti 2dr Hatchback


The ti was billed as an entry into
the BMW line but inappropriately aimed
at college-age men. Properly marketed,
it would have sold, and the new compact
available here. A 63-year-old
grandmother who loves to drive, I
have averages 25,000 miles/year,
averaging 32 mpg. Service has
been excellent. I can't imagine
driving anything but a BMW after owning
this car. Nimble, it hugs the road,
shifts like a dream, and looks and
feels new after almost 100,000 miles.

Best Features

Nimble handling, weight, brakes, mileage, sound system, comfort (including a deceptively roomy, comfortable back seat), ample cargo area with and without the rear seats folded forward, finish, interior design including dashboard. Green, yellow, red light maintenance reminder.

Worst Features

Begin importing the new 3-Series compact available in Europe.
