The car is clunky. As soon as I got it on the freeway home I noticed a lot of rattles somewhere in the top mechanism. Nothing obvious so I just deal with it. It's also a bit hard to get in and out of considering my 6'3" frame. No worries on that as I knew that going in. It's why I didn't get a X4.
Terrible fuel economy. 6 speed auto is awful.
2011 BMW 328Dark Sword - Sterling, VA10/10/2015
The 6 speed automatic on this model is not very good. The engine revs up ridiculously high before switching gears, which only worsens the already terrible fuel economy. I'm only averaging 17.5mpg COMINED city/highway. I'd expect that from something like an M6, but not a lowly 328i. If looking for a 328 I HIGHLY recommend a newer model that has an 8 speed automatic. I can't stress enough the awful fuel economy of this vehicle. If I could sell it back for near what I paid I would and buy a newer model instead.
Great Car, Even Greater on Road Trips
2014 BMW 328Craig Spiller - Encinitas, CA10/09/2017
The car has a great feel to it as you drive it, which is one of the main things I wanted when I was looking for a car. I got the car with 27k miles on it and you honestly cant tell anyone has ever owned it. It also gets surprisingly good mileage on the freeway, as it loves sitting around 80mph on extended freeway trips. I've gotten upwards of 40mpg on longer road trips I've taken it on. All told, it is a well made vehicle that works well driving around the city and even better driving on the open road.
Luxury cars come in all shapes and sizes, but they are all expected to look good and perform well. One advantage of buying a used luxury car is that you get the luxury look-and-feel that you want at a more affordable price.
