Even though this car is up there in age and mileage its aggressiveness is not diminished. It behaves less like an tool to get you from A to B and more like an extension of your body. When I want to accelerate it leaps. When I want to move through a turn without slowing it eagerly tackles it. The interior is in fantastic condition for a car that has been owned by numerous previous owners and put through its paces.
I have had this car for a little over a month now and love it. The car has outstanding power and pickup - gets to 60 in about 6 seconds! It is also surprisingly roomy for a small SUV and holds 4 adults comfortably. Good cargo space. Great handling vehicle too feels like a car. The build of the car feels solid and heavy, but it gives very good gas mileage. Love the panoramic sunroof, and what a great value for the money. Why would you buy a Mazda or Nissan when you can have this? I will say a couple of things - the cabin isn't that quiet, there is a little bit of wind noise. Also, the drivers side drink cup is in an awkward, almost like an afterthought. Honestly they should have just left it out.
I have always been a BMW fan. My previous BMW which I still have, a '99 323i is still an absolute joy to drive, and it feels as good if not better than this newer version '13 328xi. Having said that, the amount of money spent to keep the older BMW going over the years has been outrageous. As it was my only car, I wanted a cheaper, more reliable daily driver like a Camry or Accord. On the lot next to a high mileage Honda I liked was a beautiful, very well kept, very low mileage 2013 mineral gray 328xi for only $2000 more. Noticing this "affordable" BMW lead me back to considering a BMW and I found another one, same color and mileage, but upgraded trim level (luxury line), and had it transported from another store.
