It's a very safe car with great looks?

2002 BMW 3 Series

This car is running well and has the usual signs of wear and minor body issues. The mileage is only 116, 000 miles leaving plenty of life in this car. The exterior is a sharp black and the interior is tan, reducing the heat the car accumulates in the fun. The convertible is great fun for kids as well as adults. We especially enjoy driving through town on warm summer lights. Like all BMW's, the handling of this car is amazing. I have avoided several highway accidents due to the superb handling and braking. All together this is a sharp looking car with the performance to match. There are no current problems with the car that need immediate repair.

You will have no other maintenance problems other than wiring issues.

2002 BMW 3 Series

The 2002 BMW 3-series 225i is a fantastic car and feat of German engineering. Even almost 20 years old this car still has tech feature that were cutting edge at the time keeping it young for a while. The engine runs strong with smooth rides all over town. The maintenance problems you'll run into is its electric wiring. Sometimes lights will come up on the dash making you think the engine is ruined, but is only a wiring issue. Always such a relief!

Great driving vehicle, some general issues, but if you are willing to do or know someone who can do the work I would highly recommend it!

2002 BMW 3 Series

I was informed that these types of vehicles are known for having AC issues. I haven't experienced any yet, but there have been some other issues that have come up. I was also told that on average it costs about $1000 a year for maintenance, but I've spent about half of that in the almost 2 years I've had it. Most of it was just general maintenance (brake system; Filters; oil changes & Tires), in my opinion that is great for a 16 year old vehicle.
