1995 740i engine problem
By puzzled on
Vehicle
1995 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan
Review
Excited about finally owning a BMW 740, when a year later the car stopped running. Since then, the car has been parked in my garage waiting for an $8,000.00 engine replacement. I learned that there is a problem with the engine which looses compression due to corrosion in the cylinders (this became a problem only in US because of the additives added in gasoline). BMW didn't take responsibility and should have replaced my engine free of charge. In fact, dealers which have BMW's with 4.0 engine that date from 94-96 should not sell them until they replace the engine. What puzzles me is why is this information hidden from the consumers?
Favorite Features
Comfort, style & performance (when is running)
Suggested Improvements
BMW noticed this problem and changed metal alloy used in cylinders after '96. I should get my engine repaired or replaced by BMW free of charge.
