BMW 3-Series Convertible (93-00)

Value

1 out of 5

Many problems with the car, so very poor value.

Costs

1 out of 5

Very high running costs. I have spent £1,000 per year for repairs.

Driving

1 out of 5

Constant rattling noise of a bolt/nut coming from behind the instrument panel. Also, noise from fitting/fixtures. Poor initial take-off acceleration.

Performance

1 out of 5

Initial acceleration on an automatic is very poor, slower than a wheel-barrow.

Reliability

1 out of 5

Reliability is worst than Fred Flintone's stone age car. Engine failure due to manufacturing defect of the cylinder head bore, coil spring broke, viscous fan failure, gearbox failure, steering column manufacturing defect, electric roof failure.

Not a good image when you keep spending thousands of pound fixing it. KEEP AWAY FROM THESE TRASH BMW CARS.

Comfort

1 out of 5

Not comfortable to drive when the car has constant problems

The BMW alarm unit model 3T is temperamental sometimes it keeps clicking and drains the battery flat.
