Looking at 2009 328i xdrive


A few years ago I owned a 1999 328i, great car but it had a few issues (pwr door locks stopped working; intermittent power loss (wiring harness? Not sure, wasn't going to pay BMW to change it); driver's seat heat went, etc. Needless to say I got rid of it.. though it was the most fun car to own and it was and remains my favorite.

I now find myself in need of an AWD vehicle and my desire to own another BMW is back and I found a 2009 328i xdrive. 65k KMS so it has a year of factory warranty left on it... it appears to be in excellent condition, is black with tan interior: in short, it's the car I'd love to own.

My concern is reliability of the xdrive - I am not familiar with it and I don't know the longevity of it, which rolls me into the extended warranty as well - as it's not a CPO vehicle, nor being sold by a BMW dealer, I'm not sure if I can just contact BMW Canada to buy extended warranty in the spring to extend the peace of mind..
