Re: Opinions on a used BMW 3 series?

I'm not a car guy, I just wanted a decent tool to get me to and from work- regardless of the weather. I certainly wasn't looking for a vehicle that I can drive in the sand dunes. . I live in Ohio, I haven't even seen sand since 2009.

I drive a second gen, 4wd, reg cab. Other than power and mpg, it's been a great vehicle to me with the 28k it has.

Yeah it definitely does a good job of getting the dirt bikes to the riding areas.

Ah man....there's gotta be sand somewhere around there.

For sure my Tacoma has been a great truck. I bought it new in 2003 and it's only got 105k on the odometer. I had a 1993 Toyota truck for 10 years before buying my current truck. Put 210,000 on that one. I sold it in '03 and still see it cruising around town. Both trucks were/are rock-solid reliable....maybe that's why I was so pissed when the 2 different Merecedes vehicles (wife's cars) had to spend so much time in the shop. The '08 C class we had was at the dealer at least once a month for something Thankfully all repairs were under warranty, but when the warranty ran out we got rid of it and picked up a sweet used FJ Cruiser.
