"Overall, it's very nice to drive. Strongly reccommend the 5-speed manual, much better fuel mileage than an automatic and much more fun to drive. Would be quite boring with an auto. Engine could use a little better low-end torque, the seats do not slide back far enough (6'1" and just barley enough seat travel), and the cusion itself is flat and seems a little thin on support on long trips.
Otherwise, over 150k miles and no issues at all. Purchased with 135k from first owner who kept it up very well. Keep it maintanted, don't abuse it and it will serve you well - even if there's not really any character to this car. Guess I'm a BMW fan at heart - and always will be!"
"Great Car, with a reliability that does not seem to fade with every year that passes by. I would highly recommend this car to anyone looking for a comfortable, dependable stylish car that may not be brand new but still has great style and just is excellent to drive. My only complaint was performance. I gave it a 4 out of 5. Only because its does not have the raw performance of a sport car. Other wise the car is perfect.
