Great in Minnesota Winters

2013 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


I am really enjoying the car.
I only have 7,000 miles on it so far of mostly extreme cold weather driving and it has been great.
Not one single issue or visit to the dealer so far.

The AWD system is better in snowy conditions than any vehicle I have owned, and that includes a modern Subaru system, a Grand Cherokee, and two Toyotas, (one AWD the other 4WD).
It is very confidence inspiring in snow and ice, the electronic nannies do a great job.

Gas mileage has been surprising for how well the car performs.
In winter at temps of 10 below, still managed 24mpg in an AWD car.
When the temps get about 40 mileage hits low thirties for me but I drive like a sane person.
Excellent car.

Best Features

Exterior styling, heads up display, decent performance, wonderful AWD, and very good gas mileage.

Worst Features

Allow Sport mode to access gears 7&8 when cruising.
