325xiT - BMW's AWD touring wagon
Pros: Wagon versatility, glue-like traction, BMW solidity, in-line six engine, great seats, gas mileage
Cons: BMWs are not for everyone due to cost of infrequent repairs
A great, versatile, fun car. Find a private BMWCCA-listed BMW mechanic and you won't regret it. Be prepared to pay for infrequent but not inexpensive repairs. Read More at Epinions.com
