The failure mileage was 100,000 and the current mileage was 106,000. Never left me stranded but one time. The Driving Test A firm press of the top control on the key fob gently folds soft top and stores it under a plastic covering within a matter of minutes -- or, at least that's what is supposed to happen. Our 1999 328i convertible's 16-inch Sport-package setup was good for stops in 178 feet and 0. Summary On certain sport utility vehicles, there is a plastic carrier to which the oil filter housing is attached.
This is my 3rd car so it is not my daily driver. I hope you can help me. The interior is now fit to deliver a couple of gold-, if not platinum-level, big shots and their high-maintenance wives to the park. The E36's lightness made it feel more lithe. When the incident occurred, I was driving 70 mph on a dry highway using the cruise control.
Summary On certain passenger vehicles equipped with 18-inch tires 18-inch tires are standard equipment on the M5 and optional equipment on the 7-Series models , the machine used to mount and inflate the tires on the wheels at the assembly plant may have damaged the sidewall of one or more tires. Again, it appears to be some sort of power problem, perhaps something draining the battery. Light beige panels of the same texture surrounded a large matte black dash that housed the air conditioning vents and encased the steering column. The dash and the trim are upgraded to better suit the car's and driver's rung on the status ladder. Handling and control would be drastically affected, increasing the risk of a crash.
Sure, I really don't need a 3rd car. The most common issue with this car is the transmission. I'm given no explanation other than it's temperamental. On the plus side, when it worked on queue it impressed all that were present -- a definite bonus for the image conscious. Now the reverse works off and on, but I am afraid that it is going to go for good soon.
So my car can't give throttle in reverse and I got scammed when I purchased my car. She had to push the vehicle out of the parking space so that she could shift into drive gear. Continued chaffing can cause the anticorrosion coating of this brake line to fail, allowing the brake line to rust through and leading to loss of brake fluid, failure of the rear brake circuit, extended stoppage distances, and possible crash. This is typically measured in liters 3. Before I traded this car off, I fixed it, still got nothing for it on trade. But as soon as I picked up the car after the repairs were completed, the emergency brake parking light began to malfunction. The matte finish on the dash provided better visibility by deflecting glare, and the beige seats, carpeting, and passenger compartment enhanced the roomier cockpit.
Now, it needs tie rods and rear brakes, and both front window motors neither of them roll up after being rolled down , and a lot of attention to the interior. Was ours just a shaky example? Overall, passenger seating was impressive. Put on a new cabin air filter because there was not one on it already somehow. It hugs the road as if it were on a light rail. It required a couple of special tools to do the repairs, they were not expensive, but I had to leave the car undone till the tool arrived. It bears no resemblance to the flapping canvas of vehicles of yore. She stated that the vehicle would not shift in reverse gear.
I got one with just over 50k on the odo, had it since it had 20k. Total repair time - approximately 1 month. Visibility and insulation are superior -- almost comparable to a coupe. I didn't think too much of it, but now about 9 months later I have experienced severe electrical problems. While this 323Ci also has this option, it's not a necessity, since the top is triple layered and has a huge defrosting glass rear window.
Being a convertible it is much quieter than one would expect. I took it to a repair shop which specializes in bmws and they told me this was a common problem and that I had to replace the transmission. That puts the unsprung weight of the tires and suspension bits farther away from the car's center of gravity so that when a wheel hits a bump, the shock it imparts generates more torque for the structure to resist. I seems like a great deal but do the 323ci's have problems, are they slow, are there any downsides to them, ect. We never tested the former 323i cabrio, but the new one whooshes from rest to 60 mph in 7. So, the new car has a glass window and a tasteful interior, as well as more trunk room.
