Review

I leased a used, 1998 BMW740I. I felt
confident that I would be protected by
the manufacturer's warranty. However I
later learned that the warranties are
tiered and started expiring months
after I signed the lease. The car only
had 19K miles, and I've only put 12K
on it. I am turning it in early
becuase it has so many mechanical
problems, mostly electircal, but it
has also has overheated three times,
leaving me stranded. I can't afford to
miss any more work. This car is going
to ruin my career. I want my Toyota
back!


Best Features

Looks good.


Worst Features

BMW needs to work on quality and reliability! It's a shame that my Camry was a better quality car.

Review

This car is the finest machine I have
ever driven, and believe me I have
driven a lot. The power and handling
are excellent, and that is what makes
the car fun to drive.

In short, it is the perfect blend of
performance, luxury, and elegance.


Best Features

The key thing I like is the car does exactly what you want it to do. It is an extension of you. You can drive slow and reserved getting good gas mileage (18mpg) or you can shift into sports mode and fly. I love the navigation system and onboard computer.


Worst Features

I only wish it came with larger low profile wheels, but I think that would make the ride less smooth, but hey I am a low-profile nut. None of the large power sedans that this car competes against comes with wheels like that anyway.
