First time buyer, need advice please
Hello, I'm a small time business owner that is currently driving a tired, beat up 1999 explorer xlt, with door locks that dont work, and seats that are uncomfortable.
I was searching for a new used car for under 6000 today ,and came across a 2002 BMW 325i Sport. It has 136000 miles and is automatic. The person said it was purchased at 56k as a Certified Pre Owned from a BMW dealership.
I need a car that is a reliable daily driver. I can do normal maintenace, and some swap suspensions, and do minor engine repairs.. sensors, evap units, tb's... just not clutch/trans or internal motor work.
MY question is are BMW's reliable with higher mileage? Reliability is huge for me. Are there any other makes/models I should look for, and are there any common problems with these cars?
Thanks for the help in advance.
