Fun but not reliable
By AndrewR on


1998 BMW 7 Series 740i 4dr Sedan


This car is a lot of fun to drive. It
performs like a sports car but has the
roominess of a large luxury sedan.
But, the reliability problems make it
difficult to justify owning. It's
almost at the point where I never know
when I turn on the ignition whether
the car is going to get me where I
need to go. Everything from body
mouldings that fall off while driving,
two failed catalytic converters, a
failed radiator, an airbag warning
light that comes on intermittently, an
intermittent warning that my rear
bulbs are out, and on and on and on.

Best Features

Incredible performance, nice interior, beautiful wood, lots of trunk space.

Worst Features

Old technology, useless on board computer system, horrible reliability.
