2016 BMW 3 Series 340i xDrive 4dr Sedan AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 8A)


Review

This car has proved to be so much more enjoyable to drive since I replaced the run flat tires with conventional tires. Not only to drive but in the level of comfort experienced.

Review

BMW knows how to build a car and engine. They however don’t know anything about how to properly make computer systems.. Nothing is more frustrating then getting into a fantastic driving machine only to have a infotainment system that is literally useless. With constant reboots, freezing and sometime not even turning on , all without the ability to totally shut the system off, you quickly find out how much you just want out of the car.sure there is the display off option , however ... that doesn’t mean the system is actually off. Oh even better let’s try to completely reset the whole system without needing the dealership... also not an option. Cap that off with BMWs most amazing NON TRANSFERABLE warranty , and your looking at an easy and unrealizable repai that cost anywhere from $1000 or more . I still love the brand , BMW makes true luxury sports car and the build quality shows all of that. style wise the car is timeless and hold a unique design that no matter what year or model you drive , if well maintained and cared for, will still grant you many compliments. Interior is symplistic and comfortable and lush in soft touch areas and high quality hardware and leathers . Seats are firm and supportive, engine noise is let in just enough to let the driver feel truly satisfied when stepping on the gas peddle. The sport seats hug but and can be tight for larger frames , but have the option of electronic adjustability . Remove the rediculous IDRIVE BMW system and you have a piece of German engineering that is a vehicle that is sexy to look and a true fun. Fast joy to drive.

Review

Leased the 2016 328i xDrive. Drive fine for two years or so until one day, the engine revved when stopped fully at a light, causing the car lurching forward, rear ending the car in front of me. This has been a known issue, BMW head engineer took weeks investigating blah blah blah, conclusion is nothing wrong. They won’t even let me end my lease early!! Note, my foot was on the braking, full stop, so naturally I let go of the brake, & the car just jumped forward, I immediately braked again but couldn’t hold it back. NEVER A BMW AGAIN.

Review

For a German car that costs so much on initial purchase, It does not hold it value very long. If you like speed and tight performance, this could be the car for you. You feel every bump, crack and crannies in the road. The run flat tires with stiff sidewalls, adds to the performance level and harsh ride. The 2.0 liter turbo has plenty of get up and go upon request. The gas mileage was pretty good even while driving at 80 mph freeway speeds. You can hear the husky sound of the motor. Was not impressed with the purchase experience and readiness of the vehicle at pickup time. This soured my impression of BMW overall. The service department was unable to find a noise in the dashboard that was heard after a hard braking then accelerating. I usually don't buy the same brand twice.

Review

The car was lent by the dealership for several days. It feels really safe and handling is great, unfortunately it is really uncomfortable and noisy. I liked the GPS but the sound system is mediocre. MPG was fine but the 2.0l engine was a bit underpowered. BMW look great but are really uncomfortable and noisy.
