2002 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my first BMW and it's fun to
drive and I feel very safe with the AWD
and all these airbags. However, the
trunk is so small that on a business
trip we ended up having to put items on
the backseat. The feel of the road is
nice for driving but my elderly mother
suffers from the bumps and potholes.
Next time I will have to look for a
larger, smoother riding car.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the steering and handling. I live at the top of a steep curvy road, and I get a thrill daily taking those curves.


Worst Features

My car came with Pirelli tires- which we changed out at 8400 miles. Why they put those horrible tires on an AWD vehicle, I'll never know.

Review

I was going to buy a Passat- my wife
liked the Bimmer. Guess what happened?

It still turns heads. A cardiologist we
know complimented us on our choice.

It drives like the premium car it is.
The exterior and interior appearance
and finish are great (of course), the
in-line six is sweet, responsive and
torquey, and the steering, handling,
suspension and brakes are outstanding.
A full roster of luxury amenities are
available. Back seat and trunk space
are adequate, not generous. Fuel
economy is decent. Sticker shock gave
way to a warm glow. Isn't that what a
car of aspiration should do?


Best Features

Safety- All wheel drive, stability and traction control, ABS, xenon lights, air-bags galore. Solid fit and finish. Not a rattle anywhere no matter where you go. Ride, handling, steering, brakes all top notch.


Worst Features

BMW needs to re-evaluate its styling as times change. I would work on the rear end rather than the perfectly proportioned front. Rear view cameras should be offered soon. The 2.5-liter- six is great but a little more grunt and oomph is always welcome.

Review

Love this car and was worth every
dollar!

The 3.0 inline 6 is amazing- quiet,
smooth, and pulls all the way up to the
redline.

The body is tight and makes you want to
find and push the limit on the twisties
and turns.

Interior quality is excellent and only
the Audi is as nice. Very tight build
and everything feels solid.

Body style is not the most forward
design but it has a look that will age
gracefully and is a car that is worthy
of owning many years down the road.


Best Features

Engine, suspension, wood trim, Upgraded Harmon/Kardon speakers.


Worst Features

cup holders bigger and more accesible. arm rest was not standard on 2002 models. very little suggested improvements!
