As much as we ‘re generally not fans of Consumer Reports and how they rate cars, we do take notice of their reliability ratings. For 2013 CR has rated the 328i as the most reliable sports sedan on sale in the US market.

The 328i came out last year equipped with the highly acclaimed N20 2.0L four cylinder turbo and efficiency ratings higher than the US had ever seen in a 3 Series. But performance is expected in a BMW, reliability isn ‘t always – especially for a new model. So this is a nice surprise.
