I hear people say that BMW's are not reliable and end up in the shop a lot and cost a lot in repairs.
Edmunds.com say that maintenance over 5 years is not bad at all for a BMW. In fact the "true cost to own" (maintenance and depreciation) is cheaper than a Lexus is300 and the maintanence costs are less than an Acura TSX. http://www.edmunds.com/new/2005/bmw/3serie...sidenav..4.BMW*
So, being a new BMW owner with 36k miles should I be worried that I just got myself a money pit, or is the Edmunds site correct and BMWs do not cost that much to maintain?
