Excellent vehicle when given regular preventative maintenance.

2004 BMW 3 Series

This vehicle has been exceptionally reliable. The vehicle came with included service for the first 30, 000 miles but the dealer would not perform oil service before 15, 000 miles. I know better and because I serviced mine every 6, 000 miles, my vehicle did not fall apart a week after the warranty was up. You must use only supreme unleaded fuel. This vehicle or risk problems with the fuel system. (This is explained at the time of purchase). The alignment is set a bit aggressive which can burn through tires quickly. This can be remedied by having the alignment set a bit less aggressively by a qualified shop. The convertible top liner is held together by cheap plastic and shoelace quality cords. This last about 2 years and cost about $800 to replace at the dealer. An upholstery shop can usually do the same job for less than half the price. To make the cords last longer, put the top up whenever the vehicle is not in use. I love this car and if you care for it, you will too.

It keeps Its value over time.

2004 BMW 3 Series

The BMW is a beautiful stylish design, ours is midnight blue with silver trims and a medium brown leather interior. The interior is extremely comfortable and spacious inside with adjustments to ensure your seat is in the perfect position, one of my favorite features is the miles showing on the windscreen, it helps me to concentrate on the road and keep to the speed limits which is not distracting. There is a small pop up screen in the center console which is fantastic for sat nav and radio controls, it is contemporary and well designed. We've owned our car for 5 months and Its always been reliable with no problems, we often get compliments from people on the look of the car and the space inside, the trunk has plenty of space.

Great little car with style.

2004 BMW 3 Series 325Ci

The stylish body, push of a button convertible top make this a great vehicle for cruising. The comfortable seats have programmable memory settings, heated and electric adjustments to make entering rear seats easy. The bright headlights are automatically programmed to turn on in dim light. The windshield wipers have automatic rain sensor. Direct stability control, cruise control, air condition ambient temperature control, power mirrors, power windows and door locks. The performance is great, maintenance is average cost. I recommend this car as an entry level BMW.

Nice Car, Good space, but lots of gas

2004 BMW 3 Series 330xi

Really good car, smooth ride. I love riding in this car and the power that it has. The car is not too well on gas, however. Have to fill up my tank almost every week. The car is very comfortable. AC and heat work really well in this car. There are also seat warmers in this car that provides for a comfortable ride! The car is also very spacious it seats five people and it also has a very spacious trunk. There also includes a sunroof that opens up and allows for a good breeze to come through. Overall, I love this car and would recommend it for a car buyer!

2004 BMW 3-Series, a small reliable car.

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci

Performance is great for an older car, overtaking is no problem. Many rumors about BMW not being very reliable but my car has had minimal problems on my 3+ years of ownership. Had to replace cooling system in the car after a couple of months, but after that there has not been any problems. The comfort in the car is alright. It is a smaller car so there isn't as much leg room or space as a luxury sedan, of course, but not a problem. The vehicle has heated and motor seats, AC, AM/FM radio, 17 inch rims in front, 18 in the back.

- Alex I

Not too bad for an '04 and still looks good!

2004 BMW 3 Series 330xi

The air conditioning is in need of repair, most likely a very costly evaporator. It also burns oil and has some oil leaks. I do not like the run flat tires at all; my previous BMW had conventional tires, which were much better. I believe I have bent wheel(s) as there is a vibration when driving higher speeds. Aside from this, it is in very good condition.

- Dana C

My blue 2004 BMW 3-series sedan.

2004 BMW 3 Series 325xi

I love my vehicle! It runs really nice, great 0-60 speed time, all wheel drive, great sound system, leather interior, sunroof, perfect car to drive during the winter. I had a problem a while ago with the coolant hose having a leak, which is pricey to fix. But overall, my favorite car. I will probably drive it until it dies!

- Ava M

Most interesting detail is that the key does not connect with the car anymore.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I have an 04 BMW 330ci coupe. Not as comfortable as desired but enough as long as only driver and passenger ride. Very speedy with good control. In good condition but maintenance is not cheap. Very reliable with appropriate maintenance. Electrical problem that keeps airbag lights on. And car key does not lock the doors.

- Bob D

Reliable with minor issues.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Very reliable but have run into problems with the catalytic converters and interior problems. My car was used before I got it so this might be due to prior user error. Best driving car I have ever had and many people feel the same way after driving it. The features are very nice and are just what you need in a vehicle.

- Maggie M

Performance and style and even It truly is the 'Ultimate driving machine.'

2004 BMW 3 Series 325i

This car drives amazing, and driving became such an enjoyable thing ever since I had it. Maintenance and repair cost are pretty expensive. Tires every 40,000, brakes every 40,000. Full synthetic every change. Nothing but high test. If I could find one with low mileage, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. I love this car.

- Tomas O

It is easy to drive and mildly affordable for a luxury make,

2004 BMW 3 Series 325i

The car is wonderful, but I purchased it second hand, and had to make a lot of repairs. The car itself is wonderful for fast drivers. It is super sensitive to all movements. It is my favorite vehicle to drive and has an amazing factory radio. The headlights are bright and perfect for night driving.

- Shea S

I love my car, and wish everyone had a cat like mine!

2004 BMW 3 Series 330i

I love how it runs, it hugs the road. Love the leather interior and the radio is awesome. I have had 5 people in my car, and everyone enjoyed and comment how smooth it the right was. I bought it use and have had no problems. . I will recommend a bmw to anyone that is looking for a new or used car.

- Linda H

My BMW is small but great. I love it.

2004 BMW 3 Series 325xi

This is a great car, though small it has all wheel drive so is good in the snow. I do have a problem with the thermostat so the ac will not work but will fix. I bought this car used and haven't had many problems. I love the car. I have two small kids and it is just big enough for all of us.

- Hannah H

The best convertible car, you can get the rooftop unlocking the car

2004 BMW 3 Series 330Ci

I have my car for 5 years now and absolutely love, never had major problems with it, transmission oil change, the tires can be a little pricey cause is 2 different tires for front and not the same for the rear as it is a sports car, drives smooth everything has been working great!

- Anna C

BMW 325ci, is a very good performance car. Also very luxurious.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I don't really have any problems with my car besides the interior, but then again I brought it used. Absolutely love the way the car feels in the turns. Also the seat are very comfortable. No motor issues at all with the car. Everything is very enjoyable with the BMW 325ci 2004.

- Annie R

amazing entry level luxury sedan

2004 BMW 3 Series 325i

It's been amazing, I've owned it for 9 years, no big surprise issues beyond normal maintenance at 100k+ miles. Great gas mileage, reliable,- only issue is poor cup holder section, only one is usable if you want to use armrest and the airbag recall which was taken care of.

- Kari B

My little blue BMW fast and small

2004 BMW 3 Series 325i

I love it it's small so if you have kids I don't recommend the coupe but it's good on gas runs great it's really fast it's very comfortable though when driving long distances. The stereo could be better it does not have a aux cord but that is just the model and year of it

- Laura W

It is expensive to maintain.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I've never driven a car with as good of handling as my BMW 325xi. The car is good on gas. It is fast and accelerates better than most with the v6 engine. The only thing I dislike is that it requires a lot of expensive maintenance and it's not very good in bad weather.

- Brant B

Everyday problems of a BMW owner.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Always has window problems often does not want to go up once it is been lowered. Love the speed, power and handle however does has a lot mechanical problems and the grilles often fall out of their socket. Also has electrical problems with the lights and the locks.

- J W

BMW 2004 x3 sunroof problems,, over all good vehicle.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I love my BMW,, it takes off smoothly,, it also has plenty of space for traveling. I wish the fog lights wasn't orange. Sunroof issues is all I have in countered with my BMW. It sticks and will not close at times,, that is all the problems wrong with my BMW.

- Helen K

Do not keep the roof off even if you are leaving it for a few minutes during the summer. The seats will burn your butt

2004 BMW 3 Series

I like it because it is a convertible and living in New England it is a good thing to have. Unfortunately it holds in the heat and cold and it doesn't have heat anymore. Two years ago I had to replace a bunch of things, but that's expected.

- Ashley R

It is a European car, so it can be harder to find places to fix it and it can be more expensive.

2004 BMW 3 Series

It's a little old and it has an oil leak that keeps getting worse. It has good gas mileage. I don't like that in general, BMWs are more expensive to get stuff fixed, and not all car places will fix European cars.

- Hannah J

It is a luxury vehicle and needs to be treated like one. It requires regular maintenance that usually must be done by a certified professional.

2004 BMW 3 Series

The performance is excellent. Reliability is excellent. Usually when there is a problem, the car will give you plenty of warning that something isn't right. Comfort is medium, but performance makes up for it.

- Jonathan M

My black 325i is entirely stock, but still looks modern.

2004 BMW 3 Series

The car originally had one owner who took great care of it for 10 years. It still runs fantastically. If you look after this car you will surely end up with a vehicle that will last as long as you want it to.

- Alex B

My current car is a lot better than my last car and this car is good for the next few years I'll have it.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I like the speed of my car and how it looks. I don't like that the passenger window is off the track and doesn't work. The sunroof cover is also off the track and I don't like that. Overall, I like my car.

- Khatlyn M

It's a great luxury car and very stylish. We are very happy with BMW

2004 BMW 3 Series

This vehicle was great car for my daughter. It was small enough for just her to handle. The mileage was good gas for her in what she used it for and she was very happy with the way it drove.

- Billy B

It feels great to sit in.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I like that it is comfortable. I like that it is a very safe car to drive. I like that it has a extra long side window so It's easy to see cars. I dislike that it is getting old.

- Rene k

Ease of handling the car, terrific smooth ride and control.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Like the way it handles at all speeds. Control panel is easy to use. Gas mileage is good. Low to the ground easy to get in and out. It uses premium fuel which is expensive.

- Mike G

My car has great pick-up. It is the perfect size.

2004 BMW 3 Series

It burns oil. I am constantly changing the oil or adding oil or changing the oil filter. The oil light will come on immediately after servicing the car.

- Pua D

German engineering is good but when it goes bad it is expensive.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I do not like how high the vehicle is for a sedan. Bumpers could look better. I like that it is fast. And that there’s a lot of things to customize.

- Jared L

It gets great gas mileage, ours gets like 36 miles to the gallon

2004 BMW 3 Series

This car is very reliable, but does require a lot of maintenance, ours is kind of old so as you'd expect the interior isn't so great anymore

- Maycee P

It is a well made and quality car.

2004 BMW 3 Series

My BMW is a grey 2 door coupe. It has a sunroof and a screen with navigation. I bought it from my neighbor and it is stylish and reliable

- Marlina M

BMWs are reliable and safe.

2004 BMW 3 Series

It is old, so it requires a lot of maintenance. But I love it because BMWs drive very smoothly and they last a long time.

- Josie T

it's fast on the starting line.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I like everything about my car. Mileage. speed, looks and size. The only thing I dislike is it's a 2 door instead of 4.

It can mess up or go out sometimes

2004 BMW 3 Series

My vehicle is decent, it takes me to wherever I want to go, although there are problems with things such as the engine

- Christopher s

Compact and a nice addition to anyone's first car.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Since it is an older model, there are some complications, but none that are to the extreme. Nice tight wheel as well

- Peter L

BMW 3 series cars are the best, especially manual.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I love my car. It's my first luxury car and i won't drive anything else. It drive's smooth and has many amenities

- Rob L

It's very unstable at times and needs constant care or it goes

2004 BMW 3 Series

It's ok but needs a lot of work it is blue with nice interactive controls and nice interior design with good gas

- Karen F

That it's 14 years old and only has 50K miles, is in great shape and I love it!

2004 BMW 3 Series

I like that it's a convertible and it's quick and easy to get around town in. It's size makes it easy to park.

- Brianna P

Body in great shape for an old girl.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Horrible acceleration. Engine blew up at 60,000 miles! No warning. Should be better from a German maker.

- Joseph N

It's a really nice blue and it has a brown interior that I really like

2004 BMW 3 Series

It drives great and I really have not noticed any problems so far. I just really love this car a lot.

- Jordan K

Paint is chipping off the back end which is not good.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Great ride, easy to handle, controls excellent, good gas mileage, needs premium gas which is to high.

- Mike G

I do not know much about cars but my car fits me and I am comfortable.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I love my car and for almost 15 years I have had no problems. I do not drive often so I save on gas.

- Mary H

It has very bad electrical problems the lights are always shorting.

2004 BMW 3 Series

It is old and everything is breaking and the interior features are also breaking. It is a money pit.

- Michelle L

It's a BMW. So it's better than their car. Faster. Nicer.

2004 BMW 3 Series

It is very reliable. Very good gas mileage. Very good ride and control. Comfortable.

- John J

German engineering is quality compared to American engineering of vehicles

2004 BMW 3 Series

Like--The quality Dislike--that it is an older vehicle without gps and touch radio

- Laura W

My BMW 330i has been a very good car, but it is now 14 years old with 85k miles, so it's beginning to need some maintenance. Because it's a BMW, the maintenance costs are higher than they would be for a non-luxury brand. Overall, I've been very satisfied with the vehicle. It is a 6-speed manual transmission, which is difficult to find today.

2004 BMW 3 Series

It has 225 horsepower and a 6-speed manual transmission, so it's very fun to drive!

- Sam C

My car is fast and a lot of fun to drive, i drive it everywhere.

2004 BMW 3 Series

I like the interior and manual transmission, i dislike the lack of bluetooth / aux.

- Caleb R

That is reliable and safe.

2004 BMW 3 Series

There is nothing I dislike. I have always loved bmws. And I'll keep buying them.

- Ricardo S

It's fast, reliable, luxurious and spacious enough for my family .

2004 BMW 3 Series

I love the way it drives. Also like the interior. It's a great car.

- Melanie B

I bought the car brand new in 2004 and I still love it just as much as when I bought it!

2004 BMW 3 Series

I Love the heaviness, lines, Durability, Safety,Dealer service

- Jac R

It's a convertible and has very low mileage for a 14-year old car.

Convertible. Powerful. Love the car. Fast and responsive.

- Derek F

The car is very Reliable.

2004 BMW 3 Series

Convertible. Reliable. Still looks good after 15 years
