Built-in focus motor
Most definitely not true. Canon DSLRs do not have inbuilt focus motors. All Canon lenses have built-in motors, while none of their bodies have.

As for the choices offered, if the D3200 really came with an 8-55 mm lens it would be a sweet deal but I suspect that you mean 18-55 mm.
Of the other two, it depends on what kind of photography you do and how much you are into photography. The lens holds the value while the body doesn't and on that measure the 1100D with dual lens kit scores highly over the D5100; you are actually getting the body at a throwaway price which is fine as it is pretty old. On the other hand the D5100 has a better sensor but you are paying a lot for an older body.
I would recommend
* 1100D with dual lens kit if you are on a tight budget, want the extra reach of the second lens, unlikely to invest heavily in photography from now on, and willing to experiment with custom firmware mods to extend the capabilities of the 1100D body
* D5100 if you need a more capable body for immediate needs and have no problem in investing more in photography equipment later

Let us know if you have specific needs which can make the choice easier.

Yeah, I noticed that, but had to step in to correct the bit about the autofocus motor and got a bit carried away after that :)
