I love the car. This is my 3rd 3-series, -when my last 328i at 180,000 miles started to show signs of costly repairs I thought is was time to trade in.
I was hopping around for fuel efficient cars including hybrids, once used to the driving environment of the BMW its difficult to switch.
The car has been 5/5. The mileage I get has been great. I am a bit of a mpg-geek and think its fun to keep track.
Most recent was a full-packed 4 people trip to NY from Atlanta, including Labor day traffic jams and driving on Manhattan. Coming home after 1750 miles the trip computer showed 51mpg average. -I'm happy with that.
Around town (Atlanta traffic 25-30mph average): ~40-45mpg
MPG "geek" driving (careful driving smooth acc etc): 55-60 mpg
I have now driven the car over 15,000 miles. No issues. I really like the torque of the diesel
Sometimes I get an annoying warning about a malfunctioning parking light. That’s about it.
After my initial “mpg-craze” I still routinely get >50mpg on longer highway trips. City traffic is probably more like ~38mpg.
Typical highway at 75mph: ~53mpg
Emission light came on at 49k, dealer changed fuel injectors
Had my first experience with run-flats while travelling. Drove 25 miles to a Wall-mart, bought a plier and a plug-kit, repaired the tire on the parking lot. -Great!
No other problems!
Absolute Zero Problems. Bought new tires
