Consumer Reports has issued its latest Best & Worst Used Cars report (for April 2013) and the 2009 BMW E90 328i sedan has been named the best sedan in the $20,000-$25,000 category. It shares the top pick with the 2009 Infiniti G and the 2010 Toyota Avalon.

Here's what the report says about its picks:

The 3 Series combines agile handling, a taut ride, good brakes, and powerful six-cylinder engines in a comfortable, if slightly snug, interior. The Infiniti G is a similarly sporty alternative. Look for the Toyota Avalon if you want a roomy interior and lots of comfort.

The E90 3 Series was refreshed (LCI facelift) for the 2009 model year.

Unfortunately, the BMW 7 Series makes the list of cars to avoid.

Ha! I like it when I'm dead on. Mine is an 09 328i! Yes, it's snug, but I would not consider the Avalon as a comparable alternative. It's a nice car, but it doesn't handle like a BMW.

Owned the 7 series. I was only happy the first day I bought it and on the last day when I sold it. In the middle was very unsatisfied, only troubles.

Great to see.

Coming from 2006 BMW 325i and now to the 2009 BMW M3.

Love the size and proportions of the E90, LCI was a must for me.

Good reinforcement of what I already knew.

They failed to mention that the G feels like driving an disconnected, emotionless land yacht.

Got my 2009 in December and am loving it.....

even more now It seems like a great car and I'm getting really good mileage with it. Only had 24,000 miles when I bought it so it was barely broken in

Great, thanks for sharing. Glad to hear our e90s are holding up...

Shata: there was a recall on the issues you are having with the seatbelt light or MAT sensor I think it was, not sure about the airbag though. I got it fixed for free at my dealership about 5 yrs ago.

They're good cars. Even though the same design pretty much ran for 10 years (more if you count it's Japan debut as a Skyline), I still think they're nice looking cars. It was on my shopping list, as I thought the interior was actually better than the E90. But there is just a ton of them around, old and new. I'm not surprised they made the list of great used cars to buy.

Love them E90's! I just recently got one myself after having many BMW's and many other cars, and I feel like it is one of if not the best daily driver I've owned. It's just got everything I am looking for in an every day car.
