Fun and reliable vehicle for daily driving
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.
My vehicle has a hard top convertible
My vehicle has had very few problems. I've had to replace all 4 tires 3 different times since I purchased. The starter went out not long after I purchased, I've had to replace the AC air compressor recently. My vehicle has been exceptionally reliable, very comfortable even on long trips. It's a hard top convertible which has been a fabulous feature
Beautiful, fast and amazing car!
At first I loved my car, but as soon as my warranty was over I started having the check engine light on come on. I kept taking it in and they would say it was fixed and then it would come back on again. Finally after 5 time of taking it in they realized that all 4 turbos needed to be changed, which as we all could guess cost me a pretty penny!
drink Holders in front and back.
The BMW is a great car. I had it for about two years now and I'm in love. The thing is I'm a family of five and the car just isn't fitting us anymore as we grow on. There's four seats without including the driver seat. But the kids can't fit comfortably in it. I wish the seats had more leg room it's very tight in the back for the kids legs.
Amazing car does what I need it to accept Bluetooth doesn't work to play music.
I love my car. It is the perfect size. The only problems I have had is with the measurers. The car claims that my oil engine is low but after taking it the store. It is just measure. But the car does everything and I love it. One weird thing is what the Bluetooth only works with talking on the phone but not for other things like music
Great Car with few bumps!
Great car. But I guess I had difficulties with my car battery and was so expensive to change. For gas options is just only one the expensive one. But other than that is really a great car, if I use it on the highway give you a great gas savings but if I use it just for here and there trips in the city it really waste a lot of gas!
I love my BMW i325. Please buy one and find out for yourself.
Performance and handling are premium. Grips the road..I have total control of the car. The mileage is optimal. Extremely comfortable interior, buttons are in easy to reach length. Plenty of legroom and headroom. Sunroof open has extremely smooth sound with aerodynamic detail. Trunk is deep enough for 3 large suitcases.
BMW red interior car review
My BMW is a really good car. One of the cool features is when you walk up to the car and you have the keys in your pocket the car is able to unlock itself. There seem to be no problems with my car you just have to get your annual check up. The car even has different modes! Including sports mode and comfort mode.
BMW 328i luxury model nightmare.
The vehicle used to be reliable until the extended warranty ran out and all of a sudden it started falling apart which led to expensive maintenance issues that were covered and required out of pocket costs. It has been difficult to keep up with repairs and has become virtually a money pit of an 'investment.'.
It is an amazing and modern car, everything about it is perfect!
It is an amazing car, it drives really great and has great stability. The interior is beautiful and everything about it is just great. I've been with my car for about 2 years already and I do not regret buying it. I had one problem with the A/C one time but I fixed it quick, other than that no other problems
