2001 BMW 3 Series 325i Rwd 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

In the 2 years I've owned this car I've
had to replace 4 power window motors, 3
diff sensors and some temp gauge for
the A/C... thank god it's under
warranty. But the warranty expires in
Nov and I'm selling and never buying
another BMW. Way too high maintenace.
The roadside assistance guy told me
they're great in the Alps... but that's
about it.


Best Features

Fun to drive.


Worst Features

power window motors that last more than 1-2 years.

Review

I warn you - do NOT buy a BMW! I was
very excited when I bought my BMW 325i
new in 2001 - after shelling out lots
of cash for the car, I expected it to
hold up, but I was let down quickly.
In the 3 years that I've owned the
car, I've had to replace all of the
window motors, sunroof motor, CD
player, engine sensor, & now my air
conditioner!!! CRAZY!!!!!!!


Best Features

None at this point.


Worst Features

Everything - I'll NEVER buy a BMW again.

Review

I bought the 325i sedan used in July
2002. I loved the look and passed up a
similarly priced Lexus because of the
look and nameplate. It was a mistake.
I must have had it in the shop at least
6 times in the 15 months that I had it.
The window came off the track (2x), the
front passenger door leaked (2x), brake
pad replacement, and even once when the
engine just started smoking and stalled
at a stop light! The leather interior
is inferior to the Lexus as well.
Overall I really wanted to like the car,
but too many little problems will keep
me from buying it again.


Best Features

The dealership. Since it was still under the original warranty, they gave me free services, all my problems were fixed on the car for free, and the little perks like car wash, cookies, drinks, internet access, etc... was wonderful. Also liked misc. features not found on cheaper cars.


Worst Features

Build quality! If I'm buying a car that expensive, I expect to get quality for my money spent.

Review

I purchased this car used in January
2004. Engine is really smooth. Don't
worry about the power of this car
because it has lots of power. Fuel
economy is excellent too. I Highly
recommend this BMW!


Best Features

Engine, style, xenon lights, and good turning characteristics.


Worst Features

More standard features(almost everything is an option) and more room in the backseat.
