Information on 2008 BMW 328i

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

I purchased the car used and have had it for almost a year now. It had over 100k miles when I bought it and was only owned by one other person. I had to replace the starter eventually and the dealership I bought it from replaced the fuel pump. Both interior passenger door handles in the front and back were made with some type of artificial material that melted and leaves behind a sticky substance if touched. Other than that, if you take care of the car and keep up with regular maintenance check ups it could be a reliable vehicle.

Awesome car, lots of maintenance.

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

I love how the car drives, has strong & and sturdy feel to it - like a race car. The only problem is that I feel like I am constantly having to take it in for maintenance, like almost BMW owners, I suppose. I do have a sulev engine, which has been a life saver since everything is covered for up to 150k miles. But with a sulev, I heard that it may be the reason why I am always having engine issues. Also, the passenger side door handle is completely melted. Heard it is a common issue.

Dashboard and smartphone compatibility and hard to find oil entry.

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

The only problem I have with my vehicle is how difficult it is to connect my smartphone to the Bluetooth. I guess I have to buy an adapter on the website but I think it should come with the car instead. Other than that the dashboard is nice because it lets you see real time updates on what you car needs. From what I hear, it is also hard to see where to put in the new oil for the car.

Baby Got Go Power to make you feel like a woman

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

I have on my BMW for the past eight years. It was very comfortable, reliable to always start, the driving performance is amazing I often feel like I am one with the road. Inside of my car the leather with chrome on the handles on the dash. Since I live in the desert one of my handles on the passenger side melted.

Electronic issues and undercover

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

Electronic problems with the door on driver side is give me problems seems weeks. A lot of people tell me that happens with BMW. Always have issues with the electronic parts. And under the car on front the cover is pushing my front wheels when I'm on the streets driving. Is like driving in a bunch of hoops.

- Cynthia A

good gas mileage love convertible looks nice when cleaned up love to drive it.

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

I love driving this car but when something goes wrong with it, it is expensive to fix. Gas mileage isn't bad and I love the convertible top. I bought my car in 2012 so I've had it for 7 years. It is a little small only two people fit comfortably and only small people in the back seat.

- Kathy P

The 328i is a 4 door sedan. It has a sunroof and electric windows.

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

Smooth ride that looks nice. It has nice acceleration. Sometimes the ride is quiet enough that I find myself going faster than I thought I was. On the downside repairs and maintenance are much pricier than average. The rear wheel drive can be a problem on snow and ice.

- Rob B

Good quality, last long, comfortable driving.

2008 BMW 3 Series 328i

It last pretty well for its age, BMW has very good customer services so no need to worry much, gas assumption is big but the car drives very stable. So far no big problems, I choose leather seat and I am happy with my choice, it still works very well.

- Ling W

BMWs truly are the ultimate driving machines.
