One last chance BMW, only this time I'll buy a 330Ci
Camshaft sensor failure at 10000 miles, caused engine to cut out.
Alternator failure at 15000 miles.
Valves failing to seat correctly, requiring top-end rebuild at 26000 miles.
All under 3 year warranty.
Notwithstanding the above, pretty reliable. My previous car was the same model and never gave a moment's trouble.
Moderately rapid car which gives an amazing 45 mpg on long fast motorway runs.
Could do with more power.
Handles beautifully, can be placed within a couple of inches of where you want.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
