Certified PreOwned Means Nothing

2000 BMW 3 Series 323i 4dr Sedan


Bought it two years ago Certified Pre-Owned from a dealership in NY. They did 0 work to the vehicle to Certify it, except charge roughly $1000 for the warranty which covers jack squat. I have replaced window regulators, ball joints ($2000), Brakes and Rotors, Tires and a long list of other items. This car rides great but is completely unreliable. My radio and On Board Computer are currently malfunctioning but i've lost patience to go fix it. Go buy a Consumer reports magazine ....then go buy a Lexus. My Tacoma TRD has roughly the same mileage and 0 problems.

Best Features

Steering Wheel Audio Controls, Heated Seats and 5-speed. When operating the vehicle handles better than any japanese car sold, but it never operates for long. Not worth the aggravation and thousands of dollars.

Worst Features

Engineer parts that don't break. I expect better reliability as a consumer. Wake up BMW, your cars and SUVs are CONSTANTLY breaking. I'll definitely stay with Toyota products from this point on. Thanks.
