Review

The drive is best of all the cars I
have owned and I have owned MB,
Infinity Q45 and Accura Legend. No
other car on this planet can compare
to the fun driving this car. After
this car I dont want to drive my MB
420E as it is so primitivr to & series.

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


Review

I drove my 2002 745i for six months
before I finally was fed up with the
never ending updates/defects and traded
the car.

I quickly learned the iDrive system and
I have no patience for the whining
computer illiterate types who bought
the car and can't figure out how to use
it.

This car had a never ending series of
bizarre defects and constant problems
that were repaired 2 or 3 times with
little success.

I also tired of the never ending series
of software updates and control module
replacements that required an average
of 3 days in the shop per round of
updates.


Best Features

Flawless engine, perfectly tuned suspension, excellent performance for a large sedan, extremely quiet ride on the highway, Logic7 sound system upgrade is worth the money.


Worst Features

BMW should do better quality control and test the car in Europe before they bring it to the U.S. full of software defects in a brand new, highly complex system.

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


Review

This is our 4th BMW. Unbelievable ride,
you don't want to stop driving. Can't
wait to take it on a long trip. I-Drive
is easy. Be patient.


Best Features

Distint looks, you know its a bmw. Lexus owners have nothing on this one. 745I Rear deck is different, it grows on you.


Worst Features

telephone instructions need to be easier.

Review

The yellow caution flag unfurled
shortly after I took delivery of a 745i
in May, 2002. The clock lost time, the
sound system developed a roaring hiss
and the navigation system intermittenly
stopped working. The clock module, the
computer screen, and the navagation
system were replaced. The car lost
battery power once. Last autumn, an
engine malfunction developed. The alloy
coating the valve stems flaked off. One
cylinder was scored, so the ENGINE was
replaced! Did I mention a defective
ignition coil after 9000 mi? I think
the dealer did as best as possible. No
matter how much sugar you put on a
lemon, you are still left with a sour
taste in your mouth.


Best Features

The iDRIVE concept, road-handling, acceleration


Worst Features

More attention to reliability of hardware and software. More padding of the driver's seat-bottom.

Review

This is my 8th BMW. It is by far the
most unreliable one I have owned. Today
I had to drop it off at the dealer
after the ENGINE MALFUNCTION light came
on. The one thing I didn't expect to go
wrong in this car was the engine. I
guess the suspension is next.
