2002 BMW 3 Series Review

Drove it once, accelerates quickly and is very light. Not very spacey not very luxury either.

Cargo Capacity Ranked 2002 Audi A6 better.
"The A6 is very roomy can carry a lot of items in the car. Wide trunk was able to fit two 12 subwoofers in the trunk and still had plenty of space for a lot of other items. A lot of space while driving and Im a tall man."
Value Ranked 2002 Audi A6 better.
"The luxury of the interior of the car and also the feel of the car. Doesnt feel like any other car on the road while driving."

I Love Bmw's — It's a fantastic vehicle. What I like most about this vehicle is that it has look that will always be nice. It's sporty yet elegant, it hugs every corner, it feels safe and secure on the road. I would recommend this car to anyone.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great look, drives amazingly, always gets compliments.

Cons: premium gas and synthetic oil changes get costly but it's worth it.

Great Car For College Kid But Not A Family Vehicle — Vehicle was trustworthy and very reliable; very little work needed during our ownership but when it was needed it was horribly overpriced. Vehicle is well made and has a nice look but is suited more to a high school or college student just too small for a family of 4

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Reliable

Cons: too small for family

Sporty Vehicle — Classy car that is fun to drive and expensive to maintain. Car is great on fuel economy. Use premium only and synthetic oil only. Vehicle is great for commuting to and from work or for weekend leisure. Sport package is included.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Beautiful vehicle to drive especially in the spring and summer

Cons: Not practical as a family car with Infants
Maintenance costs

Great Car. — This is a great car overall. They are still very popular and I see many of them on the road. My particular model is the premium sport variety which included 17" wheels, 3 spoke steering wheel, loaded options. I have everything in this car from the dealer except for heated seats, navigation and AWD. It is not good at all in the snow or on ice, which happens here in Maryland. Good to have a back-up 4WD truck to get through the winter when it happens to snow a lot.

Pros: Style, reliability, value.

Cons: Cargo space, maintenance costs, snow.

Bimmer — When it started having coolant problems it seemed like we replaced everything on it to fix the problem. Radiator, Hoses, Belts, Reserve tank, and all the brackets associated with it. Still have a leak in the system. Each time we take it in is $250 minimum.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Great Looking

Cons: Needs a lot of maintenance
