My fancy white 3 series BMW with tan leather interior.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

No problems performance is wonderful comfort it is a little small but leather is very comfortable have good features as well like drive time lighting automatically comes on depending on your location and weather the tires handle the road very well sunroof is very awesome in this car this cup holders they can be positioned a little better because their position right over the passenger's leg area so they do not have very much room when you pull out the cup holders but I like the way that they're inserted into the dash but they could have moved him over a little towards the middle console so wouldn't be in someone else's weight but overall the car is wonderful it is awesome I love it.

Heated seats are amazing for long distance.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

Fully loaded no mechanical issues best car I have ever owned. It is computer let's me know everything is working even low tire pressure it is a luxury vehicle yet very efficient eco friendly and wonderful on gas. I can get around 24 mpg traveling and about 18 mpg in town. Sunroof all leather interior and I have back problems and the seat adjusts for my comfort and both front seats are heated so that adds to my comfort in long trips. Very roomy great for carrying my grandkids around with car seats and I feel safe in this vehicle and caring my babies in it.

Fun car but would recommend something newer that will not require as much work

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

It drives great, very smooth and stiff. It's comfortable and easy to drive. It's a very sleek car and looks newer rather than older. The features for this car are great but a few don't work like they used to. And with it being older, it has its issues. And parts are not cheap for BMWs so it can be hard. It seems to have issues at least 3 times are year and I'm out a car for a week or so. You also have to put 91 gas and with how expensive gas is, it's very hard to spend the money.

- Cecilia T

That performance steering..

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

I originally was unsure of the tight performance steering, but that ended up being my favorite part about the car! I do gave some small issues with it. However, it was pre owned. So, it could be general wear and tear. There is a minor oil leak that I haven't looked into yet. The quality and placement of the cup holders is very disappointing. I often don't use them at all because of this. I also am not a fan if not being able to manually check my oil.

I love my BMW 325i best car ever

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

I love this BMW 325i. It's so sporty and cute and love the smooth ride. I get compliments all the time while out riding around in my BMW. Although it appears small the inside is roomy and has plenty of legroom in the back seat. The leather seats really give the car luxurious look and comfortable feel. The navigation system is easy to use and extremely helpful. I am in love with this car!!

- Kelly F

Beautiful car and very reliable.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

When it comes to maintenance it can get expensive because local shops do tend to charge a lot as well as dealerships trying to sell you off on services you need when in reality you do not need anything. Great car reliable, till this day. Haven't had any problems besides usual parts that break after a certain time frame. Great performance never fails when you push the accelerator.

- Marisa O

An interesting detail is how nice the car is. Very comfortable and smooth ride.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

I drive a 2006 BMW 3 series. And let me tell you, I really do love this car. It he a luxury car, so it is very comfortable driving. With a sunroof as well if you want to get a lol breeze or some sun. I have had very minor problems with the BMW 3 series. These minor problems were easily resolved. I Would recommend to other car buyers who are looking for something similar.

Pros and cons of 2006 BMW 325i

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

Drives very well, adjustable side mirrors are perfect for drivers of all heights, motor operated seat adjustment perfect for drivers of all heights, windshield wipers that come on car were not great, plenty of room in trunk, seat belt sensors are very sensitive so having a purse or other items in the front passenger seat sets off the alarm

- Jensen S

The vehicle is nice and healthy. It is very desirable vehicle.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

The vehicle has very desirable performance and it is comfortable. The seats are designed in such a way that makes it comfortable for your rear end when you go on long road trips. The car is sleek but sometimes it has problems with the engine but this shouldn't interfere with your experience driving her around the neighborhood.

- Matthew B

Smooth drive, expensive fix

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

Fixes are costly. Smooth ride. You feel like you are floating. I personally own a manual and the shifts/ clutch are easy to master. My car had problems with water pump, oil leak, oil leak was expensive and water pump was expensive. I've never had any minor fixes, only big ones. Other than turn signal light replacement.

- Alfredo G

The fabulous BMW 325i comfort.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

This is a smooth driving, very comfortable car. It has all the bells and whistles = heated seats, sunroof, automatic seats and mirrors and side mirrors that move down to see the road while in reverse. It has pull down shades on the rear window and the rear seat windows. It also looks nice!

- Tracy T

Expensive car but worth every dollar

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

If one sensor goes out it's expensive and will not run period. If maintained though excellent car. Oil change is every 7k miles which is nice. As long as there are no mechanical issues with motor this car is amazing and drives smooth is Easy to maneuver, simple controls and runs great

- Holly H

My salvage title BMW 2006

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

Very comfortable, problem with rear view mirrors over extending. Problem with a/c other than that a solid wonderful vehicle. I purchased this as a salvage title have had no problems with it. I would highly recommend it. One other weird issue is water leak under passenger feet area

- Sandra A

Luxurious. Comfortable. Nice car. Expensive to fix. Complicated.

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

The BMW is really nice and run smoothly. Once one thing breaks everything breaks and it's expensive to fix. When trying to figure out the problems it's difficult because of the way it's set up. It's really comfortable and luxurious. It has heated seats which is nice.

- Jasmine S

The overall performance is outstanding

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

I love my car. Doesn't give me any sort of problem at all. But gas is really expensive due to the fact that it only uses premium gas. Other than that it is a great car. Kind of on the expensive side. The comfort of my car is great. The performance is outstanding.

- Wendy J

BMW 3 series still kicking over 180,000 miles

2006 BMW 3 Series 325i

The vehicle drives beautifully, smooth ride, quick response, corners very well at multiple speeds. I have over 180,000 miles on it. Leather cracks. Never cheap to fix, it's always a part connected to something else so the whole thing needs to be replaced.
