My wonderful BMW, I absolutely love it!!

The BMW 328i is super reliable, its not bad on gas and as small as it appears has a big tank. I use it for work mainly to travel and its super great. I have 4 children and we all fit just fine in the car. I love the leather interior it looks classy but this specific kind is sporty as well, you get the best of both worlds. It has electric lock windows which is also a plus. The 328i looks great in all colors mine particularly is a dark blue. Its aerodynamic and has a beautiful sunroof if you want a more sporty look. The car is easy to maintain as well. This car has a very spacious trunk which is also great.

It is the smoothest driving and most quiet car I have ever owned.

I love the dependability of my 328i BMW. I was told how much more expensive maintenance would be but in all honesty it has not been bad. The recommendation for oil changes is a 8, 000 to 10, 000 miles compared to the standard 3, 000 for other cars so I am not paying for as many oil changes. The only mechanical issues I have had are the coils but seeing this car is 9 years old I thing that is impressive. I never owned a BMW before this one but now I am committed to owning more in the future.

I love the look and it drives great!

Wear and tare maintenance you have to keep on top of. I have heard that a lot of this series of cars have the window break on them so they cannot go up and down, that happened on mine. My a/c has gone out a couple times. Drives very well, at times I have felt like the car is not reliable when I have had issues. Stay alert of all warning lights and if you get it fixed right away the car will be good to you. Very comfortable and I love how it drives.
