Most Reliable Car I've Owned

by happy owner from rhode island on Fri Feb 27 2009

mine is a 92 318is coupe. Most Reliable Car I've Owned, with 275,000 miles on it still runs like a clock with great handling, original suspenion. not to much horsepower but thats ok,with these high gas prices. but overall the car still has a nice style to it

Our Take on the 1992 BMW 318

Average is not a word usually associated with BMW, but that seems the best way to describe the entry-level 318is.

The German automaker has a lineup of coupes, sedans, convertibles (and now even a wagon) that many driving enthusiasts consider exemplary vehicles.

But the 318is is an expensive mystery.

After nearly 500 miles in the silver test car 318is, I am still wondering: Where is the value in this car?

The 318is, a two-door sports coupe, is not particularly fast. It handles reasonably well, but sets no standards for cars in its class. And it is missing such things as an alarm system, CD player, power seats and cruise control.
