The Ultimate Disaster Machine!
By Lucian on


1998 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan


Looks can be deceiving! Let's see, purchased car at 58k, coolant sensor broke at 59K, tire alignmnet at 60K, fuel pump 61K, cat converter at 63K, sealant around windows at 63K all that in one yr. That yr i only put on the car 8k miles in hot weather! It has been nighmare after nightmare. Thanks BMW i hope ur happy in Stuttgart. Hire new engineers? That would be a good start.

Best Features

Interior was excellent, and fun to drive when it works.

Worst Features

Warranty should last at least 10yrs or 100k miles...if they say the car is reliable then show me with a better manuf. warranty?
