2002 BMW 318i good for highway travel?

Asked by Dan Brown

Would you consider buying a 2002/3 BMW 318i E46 with around 150,000km on it priced $5000-$6500? I've found a couple in this price range that I like. Is the 2.0-litre motor also too small for interstate trips?

As a trade-in a 2002/3 318i would be worth $3000-$5000, if it was sold privately it would be worth $5000-$7000, so the cars you're looking at are in the right price range, and the mileage is about average. The 2.0-litre motor is perfectly fine for highway travel; it will happily cruise on the speed limit and have some left over for comfortable overtaking when needed.
