Never Again!
By T Gillespie on


1999 BMW 3 Series 323i 4dr Sedan


After owning this car for over 5 years I can honestly say it is the most unreliable & expensive to repair vehicle I've ever had. Everything that could go wrong has and at a huge cost to repair. Anyone thinking of buying one of these cars should think again! I've endured complete brake replacements every 15K miles, had to replace almost the entire front suspension (worn ball joints can not be replaced by themselves), the mass air flow sensor, all 6 ignition coils, cam shaft sensor and a whole host of other "should be reliable" electronic components have failed. If someone gives you one of these cars - sell it!

Best Features

Drives and handles great (when it's running properly)

Worst Features

Go back to the drawing board! This car is a nightmare to own.
