A Poor Choice
By AlmostEXBeamer on
Vehicle2002 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)
ReviewThe 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 FeaturesThe iDRIVE concept, road-handling, acceleration
Worst FeaturesMore attention to reliability of hardware and software. More padding of the driver's seat-bottom.
