2000 BMW 3 Series Coupe 323Ci 2dr Coupe


Review

Overall, the performance, roadhandling,
and drivability of this model BMW is
outstanding. Also, the interior design
and comfort is all you could ask for
from this size vehicle. The one
disappointment is its poor road handling
on snowy roads. My car came with 17"
low profile all-season tires that track
very poorly on snowy roads. Snow tires
are a must in winter environments.
Another negative impact of cold weather
on my BMW's engine is about a 20%
reduction in gas mileage.


Best Features

The Harmon-Kardon radio makes beautiful music. The climate controlled heater/air conditioning system handles all weather conditions very well.


Worst Features

The fan for the windshield defroster should be designed to operate at some level less than full blast. The rear view mirror should be redesigned to more effectively control the glare of hi-beam headlights.

Review

This vehicle was one of the best
investments I have ever made. BMWs
keep their value so well. My car still
performs and looks like it is brand
new. This car is in mint condition and
it has 45,000 miles on it. The engine
still performs when you push it and the
suspension and ride quality is second
to none.


Best Features

I love the fold-down rear seats for when I have a lot of cargo to carry around. Also, the dashboard is great and easy to use.

Review

We bought a 2000 BMW 5 months ago. The
road handling of the car is like no
other, it is superior in hugging the
road and leaves the driver a powerful
feeling of being in control. The car
has also been in the shop 4 times. The
engine is very underpowered and stalls
on hills. The electric mirrors broke,
moon roof broke, bushings went, control
arms had to be replaced, water leaks in
door, shifter knob fell off and
numerous other problems. The dealer
says this is inherent in these cars and
can do nothing for us. The car, in our
opinion, is unsafe and a "lemon".


Best Features

The road handling as I stated, is superior to anything I have ever driven. The comfort, also is superior and the look of the car is outstanding (one of the most beautiful cars I have ever seen.


Worst Features

The engines are totally under-powered and never should have been made a stick- shift. Lack of low end torque. Very dangerous condition, causes stalling and bucking.

Review

The BMW motto in America is "the
ultimate driving machine", in Europe -
"the pleasure of motoring". Both quite
accurately describe this particular
car. I don't know any other car in this
category that would compare to a BMW
Coupe.

Review

I bought this car new when first
released in 1999 and the only problem
I've had is with the sunroof shade.
I've had the panel and tracks replaced
twice. The car is mechancially sound,
rides great even without the sport
pkg. Harmon Kardon stereo system is
great although after a near accident,
the CD player skips on bumpy roads.
Exceptional gas mileage. Comfortable
and fun to drive.


Best Features

Wood trim, on board computer, auto dimming mirror.


Worst Features

Reduce brake dust. Automatic climate control needs improvement.
