Considering buying used 328xi wafgon (2010-62K km) What major known flaws to be expected? Thnx

Asked by Oct 30, 2013 at 04:59 AM about the 2010 BMW 3 Series 328i xDrive Wagon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

HI!  Just had a road test on a used 2010-328xDrive Wagon certified car (2 extra yrs/40,000km coverage) (price: $24,900 CDN). Runs smoothly but noticed the interior's air fan (a/c-heat) didn't work. I've had 2 BMW prior to this one and both had similar problems. Even though this deal is covered with 2 yrs warranty, how would you rate this car for general maintenance costs with an expected 16,000 km yearly? Living in Montreal (canada) where cold and snow are common for 4 to 5 months, xDrive is a must and Wagon with sure be practical for me. Thank you for your advice if any! Denis

Well the maintenance could be costly with the mileage and depends on if the guy who owned it took care of it

and since you already owned BMW's in the past you know what your getting into. Have the AC control fixed before purchase. Might be the blower fan, or something electrical. Have it looked at by a third party mechanic to know exactly what your getting into.

Hi Tom and Truduet7, I have an independent inspection already scheduled and it is stated on contract that buying the car is conditional to that inspection. Even if I am getting a 2 yrs warranty included in the deal, I want a second opinion from my own bmw mechanic. Thank you for your answers!
