Dear Bimmer (if that is how you spell it) fans,
I am in the market for a new car, and came across an affordable BMW 318ti. It is a 96 year model, hatchback style. Its current odometer reads 95,000 miles. I don't think it is too bad, but I have a few reservations on buying this car, which I am seeking clarification and opinions on
1. I have heard and friends have told me that once a BMW hits a certain mileage point (approx 100,000 miles), they pretty much start to break down and have lots of mechanical issues, which are major and need fixing. Now, I have read some reviews of this make and model, but no longevity reports are available to look at. Is this true or a myth with BMWs in general?
2. Is the repairs expensive for BMWs as many believe they are?
Any information would help. Thanks so much for your input and attention to my issues at hand. Have a great day!
