Endless money pit

1997 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan

Review

Great road car when it's running, but plagued by extremely low realibility and extremely high repair costs. Bought this off lease and have had it in shop at least once every month since for various things breaking or not working. The A/C has been repaired twice at $1800 per trip, and still doesn't work all the time, new driveline, suspension, seat motors, DMK motors, the list is endless. I've paid nearly as much in repairs as I did for the car. As soon as the last payment is made I'm buying a Lexus.

Favorite Features

Rear seat leg room, performance, on board computer.

Suggested Improvements

Quality control, improved realiability, better service system.
