Buying a used 2011 BMW 328i

Asked by Aug 17, 2015 at 03:52 PM about the 2011 BMW 3 Series 328i

Question type: Shopping & Pricing

I have a chance to buy a 2011 BMW 328i that only has 18,000 kilometers.
Are there any watch outs I should know about?  How about repairs?  As a senior, of course I worry about costs, but I also want a car that's reliable.  Any advice would be appreciated

Thanks

Grant

You should look out for front end problems and electrical issues. With that low KM I'd suggest having your local BMW dealer check it out. Be sure the previous owner kept up on the maintenance according to time and not KM. That'll be important. HTH -Jim

You should replace oil change with syntetic oil regulary. Use only premium gas don't use cheap gas ,because you might damage the catalic converters and o2 sensors.
