2000 BMW 3 Series 323Ci 2dr Coupe


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

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!
