2000 BMW 3 Series Coupe 323Ci 2dr Coupe


Review

We bought this car used at 30K on it. Very good condition at the time. Several warranty works were done to it even before we had got it. Did not get that info until I took it for another warranty work. Now, transmission is out at only 64.5K on it, 2 Years after we had it. We are BMW devotees and do own other BMWs classic to modern. But this one has pushed us to the limit. To boot to that, BMW N.A is not a help at all. That 800 number is a joke, the staff is untrained & unqualified. Bottom lin is that BMW is not what it was used ot be. A car company with great reputation and great cars is in demise. No customer support, no reliable production. I will probably end up not buying another one.


Best Features

Comfort features (seats), leg space, cargo space, performance (steering response, braking, stock suspension system).


Worst Features

RELIABILITY! Make them like they used to be in the 90's. Electrical system (very erratic) unnecessary complication of remote control and other aux equipments. Climate Control should be able to be turned off permanently and turned on only when needed

Review

I bought my 2000 # series coupe in Feb 2003 with 28,000 miles on it. In general, I love the car. It looks great, has comfy front seats, handles well on dry pavement, and gets awesome gas mileage. My complaints include lousy brakes - I've had them replaced once and they still pull the car to right and severe hydroplaning in rainy conditions.


Best Features

Smooth engine, comfortable front seats, great gas mileage, killer styling.


Worst Features

Braking performace, brake dust, hydroplaning, mediocre climate control.

Review

Bought my 323 with 60k miles on the
clock. The car has been fantastic.
Yes it's underpowered relative to the
330--but that's why it costs less! The
car is still quick--esp. when it gets
in the heart of the rev's, and it
handles like--well, like a BMW should.
The ergonomics of this car (the E46)
are a huge step forward from the E36.


Best Features

That smooth BMW in-line 6.


Worst Features

None!

Review

I purchased this car brand new in 2000
and can honestly say that this has
been the most expensive and poorly
designed vehicle I've ever owned.
I've had the following issues:
suspension issues (control arms - 2
times!), HVAC, ignition switch,
windown regulators, power steering
pump, radio, horns, speakers go bad
and require replacement. Latest
issues: camshaft sensor, amplifier,
and another power window regulator.
Stay away from BMW. BMW North America
doesn't care about their customers
either. After warranty expires, DUMP
THIS CAR.


Best Features

Great handling, fun to drive, and lots of admiring looks from most everyone who sees it. Timeless styling helps with resale! Decent car in snow, although DSC kind of makes the car slower at times when you're trying to pull out into traffic.


Worst Features

If an American car was built this poorly, it would be in Consumer Reports. Unfortunately, everyone believes that BMW's are bulletproof and only America makes crap. I know believe that Germany makes crap too!
