2007 BMW 3 Series Sedan User Reviews
- $11,846 - $12,999
- The Looks! the handling and how it drives. Fuel economy is good.
- Navigation system is too complicatedd to use. Cup holders, Run Flat tires. Premium Gasoline.
I have test driven an X3 to replaced my SUV that has been totaled. Then I saw the 3 series and decided maybe I give this one a test drive too. As soon as I got in the car I go WOW! The car feels like it is a part of you. My salesman gave me a really great deal and I went and bought it that same day without any further hesitations. I have this car for almost a month now and love it more every time I drive it. The acceleration is good and fuel economy is good for a 6 cylinder. 100,000 mile warranty with nothing to worry about except the run flat tires. can't beat that!...read morehide

- Performance, Ride, Looks, Feel
- Small glove box and center console
I own a Lexus SC430 Coupe and a Lincoln Navigator. My wife's Jag X- Type's lease ended so we needed to replace it. We test drove the Mercedes C300, the Lexus ES350, and a BMW 328xi. We both felt the BMW was the car for her. The 1st dealer had no 335's in stock. I went to the Dealer on the east side of town to get a second quote on a 328 and asked to take a test drive in a 335. All I can say is that was a $4,000 test drive. The car just blew me away. With it's combination of performance, handling. comfort, and superior quality it truely is The Ultimate Driving Machine. The only problem I have is I hardly get to drive it, but when I do.....What a treat!...read morehide

- Fast and Powerfull. Great corning and stop.
- MPG , Floor Mat
I like it very match compared to my BMW 525 `04. The 335xi drives smooth when roads are smooth, but I live in Michigan sometimes you feel ride is too harsh. MPG not great in city. Floor mat on driver side moving they do not stick to the floor so ends up blocking the clutch and breaks pedals. All in all so far it has been a great car, good looking on the outside and luxry on the inside the most powerfull....read morehide

- Love the way it looks in black, love the way it drives
- Hate the reliability issues that are unresolved, needs lots of oil and gas
Well what should I say? I don't usually waste my time writing reviews on cars but in order to let out my frustrations I'm doind everyone a service. Lets start by saying this is one of the best driving and most comfortable cars I've driven and THE biggest reason I bought it and I'm not mindlessly bashing my car. We had owned a 1990 328 and it was great and so decided to get another one. My wife loved the way it looks and combined with its driving and super cheap lease, decided to get it. I should have done more research however and see the reliability issues that plague not only this car but all BMWs. I thought they made the "ultimate driving machine" but I guess that doesnt mean it will hold up for more than 6 months. Things started to fail at about 15k miles or the first year we owned it.
The iDrive was a big mistake and a waste of money. It looks great but impossible to use while driving. When the weather go cold the screen was very touchy and several times did not work at all. BMW fixed with a new system-- the entire system. Soon after the power seats went out and BMW fixed it but soon after the same problem. so far croos our fingers its ok. Then one day the starter button refused to start the car and was fixed. The front wheel bearing made noises like an iPod in a blender while driving down I95 to VA and was nothing but a headache to get everything in order. Returning from another trip, the rear speaker mount vibrated out of place and continues to make broken speaker noise. We also had BMW add..... no joke, 14 quarts of oil over the course of one year! Is that a shame?! There was a few times it made a cloud of smoke but other than that where did it all go is the question. Thank God they pay all the maintenance costs cause I heard synthetic oil costs $15 per qt. BMW claims its normal and asking around other people have been having this problem as well and there is no solution but theyre working on it. so much for being environmentally friendly. In any event the probelms continue- the a/c belt went broke at 8k miles, the steering pump needed to be replaced at 9k miles and the blower motor burned out shortly after. Electrical problems here and there add up to a pain in the neck and take away the joy of driving this car. FYI we were 100% happy with our 2005 Chevy Suburban and would get another one but not another BMW....read morehide

- Handles great, mp3 adapter
- Reliabilty issues, engine had to be replaced at 6000 miles
This car is plagued with problems, first the car came with a ton of rattles coming from the rear passenger door. Took to two seperate dealers a total of six times, but they only somewhat fixed them. Now the car is in the shop because it left me stranded on the way back from work. Turns out the car needs a new engine.Another problem with the car is that there is serious hesitation when accelerating from a dead stop, as well as when trying to pass up other cars on the highway, this is a liabilty issude and bmw should really fix this. Sad to say, im gonna sell it as soon as they replace the engine, as i've already been through enough grief and mental anguish caused by the terrible customer service at EVERY BMW dealer that iv'e been to....read morehide

- Drives like a slot car, stops on a dime
- so many problems i cant count, problems, problems, poor gas mileage, problems
Traded in my A4 after lease was up. Hated that car 100% for reliability issues was hoping BMW was better. Its not. As many problems as my A4- rear bearings replaced at 5k miles, trunk latch broken, rear suspension unbolted itself out of the frame, right rear brake caliper replaced with 15k miles, added 1qt oil every month, power window switch defect, interior panels shook loose needed new screws, front speaker loose, wiper motor burned out replaced at 18k miles, windshield cracked unexpectedly, rear defroster broken... thats my list so far and its been 1 year. I don't want to own this car for 5 years! Had my Toyota Avalon for 10 years and not a single problem. Never again will I plop down $7gs on a lease for a BMW thats for sure! Contacted BMWNA for an early return and so far maybe theres a chance. could just be a lemon according to them...read morehide
