Very good car when not in the repair shop!
Alternator suddenly went at 120k.
Right brake light burned through the connection block.
Had to weld the exhaust 3 times before getting an entire new system.
Coolant leaked from tubes - replaced all.
Brake drop line fell off.
Turbo stopped working at 137k.
NEW ENGINE at 150k. Cam shaft cracked and destroyed the engine.
Another new turbo.
Replaced fuel pump.
Injectors clogged, power in high gears is now gone.
The car cost 6000 euro, repairs cost nearly 4000 euro! Had enough; getting rid.
Having said that, other than the repairs, it was a great car to drive.
Smooth ride, handles well, spacious cabin, not a lot of space in the boot (1 suitcase).
Slow to get off the mark even for a diesel, but was very powerful in higher gears (in its early days).
The car looked and felt great when not in the shop; it was a head turner.
Most BMWs are usually reliable, but I had a bad one. I wouldn't want to put anyone off buying a 320d, but there are a few lemons out there.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
