This car has been excellent in the few months that we've owned it. This is our first BMW and has us considering BMWs for future car choices already. The drive and feel are what make this car great, along with the very sleek styling (black exterior, black interior in our case). The technology and infotainment system are easy enough to use and don't seem as outdated as we expected from a 2011 vehicle. We do not have children and seldom have anyone else ride with us, but the backseat does seem a bit tight for multiple passengers as once. Overall, we've enjoyed driving this car immensely since our purchase. even my wife, who is not a car person, has commented on how much she likes driving the car.
I've had the car for four months. In that period of time, one of the door handle lights has gone out, one coil needed to be replaced, trunk latch is broken/either it won't open or won't shut, tiny square piece on the bumper has fallen out and will have to be replaced, and finally the most troublesome is the door to the gas tank gets stuck periodically and won't open so I am unable to put gas in the car at that time. Maybe I just got a lemon?!
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.
