2003 BMW 3 Series 325xi AWD 4dr Sedan (2.5L 6cyl 5M)


Its a very sporty car. Great
acceleration and handling. For a
compact car, its build very solid.
Standard safety features likes side air
bags, head curtains etc are great. The
clutch burnt out 1/2 mile from the
dealership. Dealership fixed it and the
clutch burnt out again after 500 miles.
Dealership fixed it again. Anyway, so
far(1500 miles), the clutch works fine.
The automatic temperature for the
AC/heat never
worked.Although I had a very scary
new car experince, I would still drive
this car just of its sportiness.

Best Features

- Great protection - Excellent handling and performance - Free maintenance - Prompt & friendly roadside emergency assistance - The heated front seats are very quick. - Rain-sensing wipers are handy - Great handling on snow. - Standard Sound system is pretty good IMO

Worst Features

- very poor built quality. U will always have something or the other going wrong - Service dept not so friendly(atlast in the NYC area) - Very less storage place. Just one open cup holder in the front. - BMW Navigation for 3 series sucks. - Non standard ergonomics
