A maintenance nightmare
By toni p on
1998 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan
This vehicle has been like a beautiful woman with an evil heart. From the first year until the eighth year of ownership, it has been one "freakish" thing after another. Unbelievably, in the third year the engine went, a piston through the heart! Cat converters, AC, exhaust. Car is in shop for it's final repair, a blown gas tank! Another $2100 repair bill! Great driving, great looking classic, but I've had enough. Time to look at another brand! Did I just get a lemon or what?
Great body style, exceptionally smooth driving.
This car just simply had mechanical issues from the beginning. Wouldn't even know where to start with suggestions on the mechanical improvements for my vehicle.
