Could Be Great - Comes up Short
By Michael on
2006 BMW 7 Series 750Li 4dr Sedan (4.8L 8cyl 6A)
Wanted a large luxury car and chose the 7 Series BMW. Loved the ride, handling and overall performance. The suspension recall was my initiation of what was to come. Next, they replaced the cam shaft (no charge), tire monitors were replaced, but the worst and ongoing problem is the driver's door refuses to close. Imagine paying 85K for a car and you have to rope the door shut so you can drive it to the dealership, lol. Lastly, my experience in the car wash when the flood was delivered to the front passenger seat floor. I thought I left the window open, but no, there was a flaw at the base of the windshield. I won't be buying another BMW product if they can't get this car right.
The luxury features, handling, acceleration, steering input and responsiveness. Really is the most maneuverable large vehicle I have ever driven.
They really have to get the details right. It is insulting to have such a nice car be so unreliable. At this level, the manufacturer has not provided the ownership experience expected (and I am not that demanding) of a "high-end" luxury automobile. BMW comes up short in my experience
