2001 BMW 330ci is our used purchase car that everyone dreams of getting when buying a used car. It's our good as new used problem free mobile.

2001 BMW 3 Series

We bought the car with in the last 6 months or so used and it's a 2001 bmw 330ci and so far we haven't had any major issues with it. It's been a pretty good car so far it's driven every day and it had almost 180,000 miles on it when we got it and we have put a lot of miles on it already we even took it on a short trip like a 6 hr drive there and 6 hrs back up through the pass into the mountains and it did just fine the whole way there and back. We have done just normal maintenance to it also since we have gotten it and it's seemed to be good with just that so far. We were a bit concerned with it being a 2001 and also being a BMW considering all the electric stuff that Bmw has in them but it's still been just fine all the things work in it still all the electric upgraded things still are in good working condition and it's really been a bit surprising how well it's managed so far and we are pretty hard on it honestly so this car has been one of the better used car purchases that we have ever purchased before and it wasn't a used pre-owned certified car it was a used private seller type car and the person said that it had more or less sat there for the last almost 2 yrs before he ended up selling it to us. So it's being so issue free so far is a shock to us and a wonderful surprise being that we really weren't prepared to end up with a lemon at all. On thing that had happened with it though is that we took it too Jiffy Lube to get it serviced and once we picked up the car after they finish servicing it the car was acting really bad it was having trouble accelerating and it was very very serious seeming so we took it straight home and contacted Jiffy Lube about this and they were supposed to come to our house to take a look at it but never showed up so a good friend of ours who had training working on european motor cars came and took a look at it and did a few minor adjustments and reset the error codes and once he did that the car never had a issue again it was just fine after that and hasn't had a issue since so we learned never to take our car to Jiffy Lube again cus they are clearly incompetent when it comes to working on a motor that isn't the common Honda motor or Chevy motor so other then that our cars been a absolute pleasure to have purchased and owned.

BMW is hard to beat. All weather driver, comfortable, fast, classy.

2001 BMW 3 Series

My BMW 330xi is the best driving car I have ever driven, especially over 100 mph. All wheel drive helps pull it through the corners as well as keeping the tires from spinning on a fast take-off. Once you get used to getting in & out of a low vehicle everything else is pure comfort. Every function is a hand length away from driver. All wheel drive has a heavy clutch but you can carry 3 passengers. At 130 mph I still get 17. 4 miles to the gallon, and it will drive all day at that speed, no problem. The only problem is waiting on parts a day or two since it was made in Bavaria. Very little repairs, mostly normal wear & tear which can be taken care of in advance with preventive maintenance, I have never been stranded because of breakdown. Handles winter weather very well, even ice. Highly recommended.

2001 BMW wagon - the driver's wagon.

2001 BMW 3 Series

I own a 2001 BMW 325i wagon. There is a reason the 3 series is often called "the driver's car". It is fun to drive and very comfortable. The responsiveness of the steering and the throttle make you feel like part of the car (there's a reason a lot BMW drivers go too fast). The seats are comfortable, and everything is within reach and placed logically around the dash. I have over 250, 000 miles on it, and it still runs great. If you keep up with maintenance on these cars, they last a very long time. I have the straight 6 engine, which is the best (in my opinion) in terms of reliability.
