The only car for me

2002 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


This is the only car I want so I will
skip the laurels and talk about the
downside. I bought the 2 yr old with a
recent inspection through a broker and
saved $10000 over a new one. The next
week the service engine soon light came
on, the dealer replaced parts under
warrentee but said I needed new belts
and a break flush for $250. The next
day the battery died and the car was
towed back to the dealer for
replacement. The next week the
headliners came off and back to the
dealer. BMW service is a zoo, sooo many
cars all the time. But this car hits
all the right buttons for me!

Best Features

The other reviews are spot on. This car rides on rails and is the perfect size and shape for a person car! 187 HP is deceiving because this car has all the power I need, especially when using the tiptronic. I can't wait to drive it again.

Worst Features

Reliability. The warrentee does not make up for poor reliability, personal time and worry about what could go wrong next. For this price, BMW should be focused on that and not new styling changes that are unwanted.
