Fun and reliable vehicle for daily driving
2012 BMW 3 Series 328i
The vehicle was purchased used in 2016. Comfort - is great with the bucket seats in front and leather. The driver seat feels cozy like a cockpit, everything is within comfortable reaching distance. Features - has the sport package. The audio is great since it has the extra speakers. It has a backup sensor, but no rear camera. Reliability - so far this car has been reliable and should continue to be with regular maintenance. Performance - One thing I did notice is the engine never really purred like most BMWs, but had a very slight growl to it. With the 3 different drive settings to choose from, there is various performance. My daily driving is in Comfort mode. If I am on the highway or long stretches of road without traffic or lights, I'll put it in Eco to conserve fuel. Sport is great when you need that extra pickup, it feels like a turbo boost kicks in. Problems - recently the driver tail light has thrown an error and when inspected, the grounding wire had melted the plastic connecting harness, which after further research is a common problem with the vehicle. The other issue I do not like is the need for run flat tires to be used. This does not allow for a smooth, quiet ride.
