2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci Rwd 2dr Coupe (3.0L 6cyl 6M)


I purchased my 2004 330ci coupe in
08/2003. As I drove it home and I slide
the sunroof cover closed it the plastic
retaining clips holding the cover broke.
BMW fixed it with metal clips.

2nd problem battery died due to heat
seats software problem left one of the
battery cells on after car was turned
off and drained the battery. BMW fixed
this by updating software and replacing

3rd problem I ran out of gas when the
gas gauge showed 1/4 tank of gas left.
Fuel sensor gets clogged and fuel gauge
stops working. Bmw does not have a fix
for this accept to clean the fuel sensor
with a easer the 1st time and replace
the sensor the 2nd time.

I'm sorry I sold my Toyota 4Runner!

Best Features

Sweet car when it runs. After having 3 problems im scared to drive it. I worry the thing will break again. I would not drive this car across country. The Fuel sensor sucks and BMW better fix this problem by developing a stainless steel sensor instead of the one that comes on it.

Worst Features

Fix the fuel sensor. Don't buy a BMW. Buy a Toyota or a Lexus!
