Not worth it!

Vehicle1995 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan
ReviewAfter having numerous BMWs from different segments (3, 5 series) I decided to move up to the flagship: the 7 series. I should have realized before buying the car that there would be problems. The engine was just replaced by BMW b/c of a recall. I bought it with 36,000 miles and a warranty on the engine. However, 3 months after having the car the transmission failed! It costs me $5,000 for a rebuilt tranny and another $1200 to install it. The car was an electrical nightmare! I spent over $1,000 in just the electrical failures (windows, moonroof, seats switches) Although, it was fun to drive the costs of maintenance is not worth it. Stick with the 3 and 5 series!
Best FeaturesThe large body style, comfort, sound system, large rear seats.
Worst FeaturesI would suggest improvements in the engine, transmission, and eletrical since this series is notorious for these costly problems!
