Year of Manufacture : 2014 | Driven no. of Kms. : 1450
- Pros: good looks, comfortable, good mileage
- Cons: performance
I bought the BMW series 1 last year and within just 6-7 months, I regret my decision and choice and consider to have thrown my money out of the window in vain. I was a bit skeptical about the car with the price being quite high in the beginning. But with the car looking so nice and with the attractive features, I fell for it. The staff at the showroom assured of the performance and service of the car. But in reality, the car performs horribly. As mentioned by abhishek, sooraj, pritha and anil, the car tends to skid on wet roads. So do we use the car only when it is bright and dry? Perhaps one should buy a separate car for each changing season! The gear box is very stiff and hard and simply refuses to budge on a single push. The rear visibility is very bad. I had to compromise on the front visibility as well for at least a week before I finally managed to adjust the seats appropriately so as to solve out the problem. From a brand name like BMW, I expected a more powerful engine. The mileage is good but the acceleration and drive isn’t very satisfactory.
