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.

BMW awesome hardtop convertible.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

My convertible is so fun! Since it is a hardtop one, it allows me to have fun in the summer while still being able to endure colder conditions in the winter. Wonderful exterior look and interior as well. Perfect car in my opinion. The convertible is the main feature but my second favorite is the parking sensors that tell you when you are getting too close to objects or other cars when parking. It also has a really fast defroster in the winter. The push start is convenient as well. And another favorite feature of mine is the ability to save a music collection in there, almost like an mp3 player in your car!

The BMW model 3-series details.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

I have not had many problems at all with my BMW. The minor issues needed were: a new battery, new tires, and an air filter. The leather seats are in good condition, the body is in good condition. I garage my vehicle therefore keeping it in good shape. I consider my BMW series the sports model, and it really gets up and goes! The power is amazing on the freeway, gets good gas mileage.

Love my BMW! Best car I've driven so far!

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

Love this car! The only downfall is it only has low profile tires so I go through tires like crazy. Other than that I love the way it drives it knows the road! It's super comfortable. It gets up to speed pretty fast! Other than parts being expensive, I'd say this car has been amazing for what I've needed it for! And super fun to drive

BMW 328i, perfect car for a bachelor

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

It's a very fast and sporty car. Haven't had too many issues, however upkeep is expensive. Not the ideal car for a family. It would be suited best for someone who lives in the city and needs to travel places quickly. Not the best on gas but also not the worst. Would love if this car had a Bluetooth feature, but only has an AUX cord.

- Hannah D

This car is very maneuverable and fun to drive.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

I have had zero problems with my car, great gas consumption. Its sporty and has plenty of room to haul four people. The interior has held up really well. The only thing I would say is that the car suspension is pretty tight, so if you live in an area with bumpy roads you might want to think about a different car.

- George H

Good car but high maintenance cost.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

Sensors are an issue. More specifically the seat sensor and the brake sensors. Make sure you get someone qualified to work on it. Other pain points includes maintenance over time including oil. Make sure you keep an eye on the millage because that will give you the best indicator on when to send in your vehicle.

- Andrew A

Luxury and quality in a sporty little car.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

Nice intuitive interior. Comfortable heated seats with plenty of adjustability options. Great sounding stereo system. Computer controls at your fingertips, easy to navigate. Smooth running engine that gives you enough performance when needed without being overpowered. Comfortable ride. Sleek design.

- Rachel L

It is a BMW with tinted windows.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

I have had no problems with the bmw vehicle, it is fuel efficient and drives nice. The oil change is expensive but worth it. The inside is up to date and technical it has a gps inside and rides smooth I would one hundred percent recommend this chemical to anyone it is very nice and I love it.

Handling and acceleration

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

I personally love my car as far as performance goes. The handling is fantastic as is the acceleration and speed. The downside of owning this car is the expenses involved when taking it in for servicing. It is very expensive whenever something goes wrong or when something needs to be repaired.

- Jake F

The way it drives and the gas to mileage I get from it. I love the look of it.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

It has been a great vehicle so far to be an older model car and I would love to buy me another one but a new model. It would really be a pleasure to have a great new BMW. So will be working on that soon. I'm pretty sure it will be a great buy and will enjoy having it like my current vehicle.

- Ann C

Performs Great! Would recommend.

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

No problems. Great car, performance is superior. Everyday driver. Gas mileage is consistent and good. Have owned two years, was an everyday driver when I purchased. Maintenance is a little expensive but car is well worth the cost. First time owner. Would buy again. Would recommend to others.

- Jaime C

Runs fast is a bit expensive but worth it

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

The car runs smooth as long as the car is taken care properly. Parts are expensive but it is worth it. All the parts are easy to find, the gear changes are easy to adapt. The only problem is that it does require certain equipment which is sometimes hard to find in certain stores.

- Guillermo B

- Hannah L

Fuel efficient, yet possesses a decent amount of hp

2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

Reliable, relatively fuel efficient with a great interior dashboard to match its eccentric exterior proclivities. I've never had to get any of its parts changed. Because it runs incredibly superbly smooth on both the highway and the city, regardless of weather
