HORRIBLE GAS MILEAGE: Convertible - Automatic 2003 330Ci
By travelgal1 on


2003 BMW 3 Series 325Ci Rwd 2dr Convertible (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


I did all my research before buying the 2003 a few months back.
I thought it would give me good gas mileage; but it is the worse I have ever had.

I average 14.3-15.3 mpg.
I thought it would be at least 20, 21.
I would not have bought if I knew it would be this bad.

I have new tires, tune-up, oil change, runs good.
So there should be no reason why I'm getting such bad mileage.

I like the way the car looks and drives, but sits kind of low to the ground.
A bit hard to get in and out of.

The convertible top works perfectly and I use often.

It costs me $80 to fill up ($4.25 gallon); I work from home and just drive near home to get groceries, bank and take my dog to the park.
