Four years or 50,000 miles. Point: The 325i sport wagon is a good compromise for those who value driving fun and hauling versatility. It handles like a sports sedan, hauls like a station wagon and gets decent fuel economy. All-wheel drive is an option for those who want all-weather traction. Counterpoint: The current 3-series is beginning to look dated despite minor styling tweaks, a well-optioned model is fairly expensive and power window switches are located on the center console rather than the door panels.
