Comfortable for my mid life crisis

The Right Car for Me | TrueDelta


Reliability is very important, but I want a car that looks great. I cannot afford a new BMW, but the 2011 328I with 30k miles sounds great. I'm just concerned with the typical issues as the car ages even more.

Priorities: Exterior styling / Reliability & durability / Warranty, maintenance cost

Preferred Bodystyle(s): Sedan

Car Needs: Errands about town / Long trips / Fun toy

Primary Driver(s): Tall driver

Need minimum of 2 seats

Will consider both new and used cars
Maximum mileage: 40000
Maximum age: 5 years

Maximum price: US $ 23000

You also emailed me about this car?

These cars are okay for people who are willing to assume a moderate amount of risk, as expensive repairs, though not a certainty, are a possibility. This is the last year for a non-turbocharged 3-Series, so that potential trouble spot is absent.

I'm assuming you are a man, personally I think a 328i is more of a female car (think college student brat).

You need yourself a Lexus, ideally a CPO but I find used Lexus/Acura's have been well maintained if in the 8 years old period. They have a good demographic buying the cars.

The ATS fits. It has the looks along with a near perfect chassis. And prices on used ones are jnder $20,000.
