1998 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan

Review

Since the purchase I have been plagued
with mechanical issues that just
shouldn't happen in a flagship vehicle
like this. Here's the list:

- Door handle broke off in my hand.
- AC system noises took 4 trips to
eliminate (most components replaced)
- Front suspension vibration took 3
visits to resolve (bushings worn out
after only 22k miles!!)
- Battery replacement (dealer wanted
$250)
- Engine gaskets leaking (not heads)
- Power steering hose leaking (replaced)
- Stereo is terrible
- Loud AC noise from engine compartment
- Check engine light comes on for no
known reason

I'm selling this overpriced hunk of
metal and going back to Lexus or
Mercedes.

Best Features

Performance and handling are great

Worst Features

Build quality is horrendous!! I owned a Lexus for 7 years with only a couple trips to service minor issues. With BMW, I made more trips to service in first month!!
