2000 BMW 3 Series Sedan 328i 4dr Sedan


Review

Bought this vehicle for travel. It looks great, but wow, for a high rated vehicle, i wouldn't buy another BMW. The windows fall into the doors (BMW dealer says thats normal) and cost to fix $$$$. Heater doesn't work well, air doesn't work well. The heated seats they work. Wouldn't recommend a used BMW or keep one past 3 years. Not worth the extra money!


Best Features

Heated seats.


Worst Features

Improve the quality of the windows, shouldn't be an acceptable problem!

Review

I purchased this car on the basis of promised road-handling and prior experience with an earlier BMW. Some minor issues which should not have occurred (malfunctioning sun roof, malfunctioning ignition switch) have been the only problems. The car handles delightfully, has a shorter turning radius than any four-door car I have encountered, looks good inside and out. This is not an economy car, and may be overrated by some enthusiasts, but it is still a safe and enjoyable means of transportation. I could, and do, recommend it to any potential purchaser.


Best Features

Exterior paint, steering, engine.


Worst Features

Improve reliability of electrical systems, find brake pads that produce less dust.

Review

It is expensive to maintain after the honeymoon (warranty), i.e. inspection #1, #2 and #3 and tires, oil change. Some dealers use the "access by dealer only" to sell unneeded part, plus outrageous hourly fees. I bought mine new but I would recommend to someone with a good income after 100,000 miles. Very reliable, powerful and fast on the Autobahn. Stateside a Mustang in a barn.


Best Features

Manual trans, power on demand. Handling. Gas mileage w/o A/C, 34 MPG. Reliability. Color: Titanium Silver.


Worst Features

Should have the dealer balance and align tires before ownership. Front passenger side area should be a bit wider for big people.

Review

Nice sports sedan, lots of fun to drive in dry weather. Poor handling in snow, and very costly in repairs once the warranty expired. Several issues with AC unit, latest $1,200 for an evaporator. Real wheel spring broke after 60K miles. I am selling and getting a Honda.


Best Features

Solid feel in turns.


Worst Features

Improve reliability.

Review

Now I see what all the hoopla is about. I was warned once you drive a BMW you can never go back to anything else. Well they were absolutely correct, excellent driving car. Put 20,000 miles on it already in just 7 months. Any excuse to drive this car. Love the handling after coming from an 95 SHO Taurus. Car looks and drives just as good as my neighbors 2005 325 for $10,000 less. Can`t wait to get my 3 series convertible next summer.


Best Features

Excellent dash and controls layout. Central locking control system. Great gas mileage. Safety systems ie: all round airbags DSC, ABS, HPS, BAC. Just as safe as mom's Volvo but a lot more fun! Low maintenance.


Worst Features

Noisy climate control fan and fresh air system.
