rjplunk9 is an unknown quantity at this point
Hi everyone,
I am thinking about buying a 1998 BMW 328i (5 speed), I can get a good price for it but I need to know how reliable they are because right now there are 125,000 miles on it. I would like this car to last me 200,000 plus miles, preferably closer to 250,000. Will I run into many problems due to the high mileage? Or is it a reliable car that will last me 200,000 plus miles without many problems? Input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
-Ryan

E36 328i a reliable car? YES
Is that particular car (the one you're thinking of buying) is reliable? Depends on whether it has been taken care of; or whether it has been abused and whether all the preventive maintenance has been done or not.
Commonly knows problems are...
- Cooling system (water pump, radiator, thermostat)
- Power Steeing fluid leaks (around the reservoir and around the hoses).
- Secondary Air Pump starts making noises before going bad.
- ABS/ASC related problems (not that common, but enough people have reported).

If I were you, I would try to get the Service Record /receipts; that way, I would know what [if any of the above] were already replaced.

My recommendation: BUY IT, you will love [the torque] it.
