2002 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

The car handles like sports car. the
acceleration for such a large vehicle
is remarkable. the i drive requires a
college degree to operate. I think I
have the car at the dealership more
often than at home. I think a yugo is
more reliable.


Best Features

i love the voice controls and suspension


Worst Features

debug the car for a 80000 dollar vehicle should not have a problem every other day.

2002 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


Review

It has been a lifelong dream to finally
own the car. Now the bad part. The
car has been into the dealership more
times than I can remember. Problems
started with the electronic keyfob
system. I've been stuck along the side
of many roads and in many parking lots
waiting for BMW roadside. I thought it
was my fault that the doors were left
open and my belongs ransacked but as I
tried to lock them I saw that the locks
open up by themselves. Overall I can't
say that I am satisfied. I probably
should have bought an S series Benz.
To have so much electronic equipment
and not train the mechanics is just Bad
Business.


Best Features

The overall design and top-end speed of the car cannot be matched by anything that I have ever driven.


Worst Features

Training BMW service departments on the problems that may arise and then teaching them on how to recognize and FIX them. They still don't know what is wrong with my car. Nobody at the dealership has any answers for me just "bring it back down."

Review

i only have 1300 miles behind me but can
confirm that getting this car was the right
decision. the ride and performance are
outstanding, while setting up preferences w/
idrive was a breeze. went w/ 19'' wheels which
add a lot to the appearance. no complaints.


Best Features

automatic rear shades (for kids), 19'' wheels, comfort seats are great


Worst Features

trunk design will get a makeover someday, but its nothing you'll think of behind the wheel

Review

This is our third large BMW, th
eprevious were 740iL's. This is a great
car and a wonderful road car. We have
had no problems with this car and are
really enjoying it. The handling and
ride are superb. The quality of the
finish on the door sills needs some BMW
attention.


Best Features

The I Drive and the load leveling which really does wonders for the handling.


Worst Features

Upgradethe quality of the interior doors sills. The finish is wearing odd after 15,000 miles.

Review

I enjoy driving the car but have had
eight recalls since owning the car.
Most all of problems have to do with
the computer or iDrive which is a mess
to use. There is still the constant
hesitation which they are unable to
fix. Overall the car is
overated,over "gageted", and over
priced. BMW rushed the car to market a
year too early.


Best Features

Performance(discounting the hesistation),comfort, handling,styling,quietness, an overall appeal of the car.


Worst Features

Get rid of the iDrive and make the ultimate driving machine fun to drive again.
