Good Car, High Cost to Own
By Chicago Bimmer on
1997 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan
Love the car, hate the car. Most beautiful car I've
owned. A joy to drive, when everything works.
Replaced 4 window motors, 1 seat motor, a
radiator, 2 water pumps, an alternator, a drive
shaft, a CD player, and dash read outs. The other
day the exterior door handle just came off in my
hand. This car has been maintianed by BMW and
certified mechanics, yet the build quality work
against the owner. It's a shame considering the cost
of the car.
Style. Handling, interior comforts, and surprisingly
good mileage for a car of this size.
BMW should admit to common fails and reimberse
owners. Some of the these repairs are completely
uncalled for, when you consider that we paid
>$60K when new. Old Nissans I've owned have had
better repair experience.
