One of the most reliable cars I've ever driven or been taught to drive in.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

The only problems I've had with this car has been the inside door handles melting in the Florida sun. However, BMW released a way to fix this problem and that has worked very well. The performance of the car hasn't been disappointing in anyway, through many different kinds of weather the car has been superb. Even in the torrential downpour of Florida the car doesn't slide around the road. The car is one of the most reliable my family has ever had, many other cars have had problems throughout the years but, my BMW always drives smoothly. I learned to drive in this car and I am a better driver than my brothers at this point in all of our lives. A feature I use everyday is the Bluetooth to my phone, being a young adult driver it's very helpful to be able to use this feature when I am trying to listen to my music.

The ultimate driving machine

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive

The BMW 3 series is really the ultimate driving machine, I love driving the car. It is not a supercar but it has just enough power to kick you into the back of your seat. Even though it is a 2011 it aged very well because it's still has the modern features of a 2018 and 2019, it has a navigation screen that it more than big enough, Bluetooth access for your phone to connect to and also two USB ports also for your phones or tablets. It does come with PDC (parking distance control) Performance wise I'll give it a 8/10, comfort and features 9/10. The BMW 3 series is a reliable car, it's just like any other car that if you take care of it then it'll take care of your wallet! This 2011 BMW 3 series still looks up to date in style and performance.

Fun and Young to Drive: BMW 328

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive

This car is very fun to drive, has great pick up (6 cylinder), and a tight suspension so it handles well around turns. The space is small, both in the cabin and trunk and it is low to the ground. People have a hard time getting out and the backseat will not accommodate people that are tall- especially if the people in the front have the seat pushed back. It is difficult to get a car seat in and out of the back seat as well. The trunk has limited storage and won't hold more than one full sized suitcase. Mechanically I've had few problems and they have largely been covered by the warranty or recalls. All in all I would say this is a good vehicle for someone that would also consider a coupe. It's driver-based, fun, and young-feeling.
