Love The Look, Too Many Little Problems
By JoeH on


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


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.
