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


I have owned BMW's, Audi's and Mercedes
so when I picked up my new 740il I was
excited. Two weeks later, I returned
it to the dealer to find out they did
not install the "black box" for the
phone. While a little slow off the
line, it cruises extremely well. The
cornering ability was supposed to be
legendary.After three complaints and
shop visits, my front tires were worn
and the front end was noisy. It turns
out the dealer had left the shipping
spacers in the front and rear
suspension. Mind you, it took three
visits and 14,000 miles to correct
this. Not a good track record for a
premier automobile.

Best Features

Integrated phone system and ease of controls.

Worst Features

Better Quality Assurance at the dealer prior to delivering the car.
