2001 BMW 7 Series 740iL 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 5A)


This is a great car! Especially powerful and classy. However, BMW has done some cheap things - like window shades and rear cup holders that fall apart the first time you use them. And the "Certified" warranty does not cover them. Also, the door jams are PAINTED and scuff easily. Within days your BMW will look scuffed up! BMW will not sell any touch-up paint for them. All BMWs are the same way. Good fuel economy for a heavy car. Lots of trunk space. The GPS is hard to use and built in phone sytem unusable with today's technology. VERY expensive to repair. Uses high-octane fuel. After 12 months it started to lack power and act sluggish. Needed some dealrer maintenance.

Best Features

Power. Lots of rear legroom. Superb space for four adults!

Worst Features

Door thresholds need to be made with the color they want, not painted. Build better interior quality parts.
