2001 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)

Review

I have owned BMW's, Audi's and Mercedes so when I picked up my new 740il I was excited. Two weeks later, I returned it to the dealer to find out they did not install the "black box" for the phone. While a little slow off the line, it cruises extremely well. The cornering ability was supposed to be legendary.After three complaints and shop visits, my front tires were worn and the front end was noisy. It turns out the dealer had left the shipping spacers in the front and rear suspension. Mind you, it took three visits and 14,000 miles to correct this. Not a good track record for a premier automobile.

Favorite Features

Integrated phone system and ease of controls.

Suggested Improvements

Better Quality Assurance at the dealer prior to delivering the car.
