Endless money pit
By RenoBMW on


1997 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan


Great road car when it's running, but
plagued by extremely low realibility
and extremely high repair costs. Bought
this off lease and have had it in shop
at least once every month since for
various things breaking or not working.
The A/C has been repaired twice at
$1800 per trip, and still doesn't work
all the time, new driveline,
suspension, seat motors, DMK motors,
the list is endless. I've paid nearly
as much in repairs as I did for the
car. As soon as the last payment is
made I'm buying a Lexus.

Best Features

Rear seat leg room, performance, on board computer.

Worst Features

Quality control, improved realiability, better service system.
