2002 BMW 7 Series (Good and Bad)
By shame on


2002 BMW 7 Series 745i 4dr Sedan (4.4L 8cyl 6A)


I want to buy a 7 Series but I have been told by many BMW salesmen that if I'm going to get one, by a 2003 or newer. They say that the 02
had several problems. I like the 2002 and newer body style. I Never cared for the 2001 and before body styles. But what I don't understand is for such an expensive car why did it come out with so many problems. Most of the reviews on the car from anyone who has owned one seemed to be very mixed reviews. People keep complaining that the car has several mechanical problems, but also say that they've kept the car for 5 to 10 years. So it must not be that bad. What changes were made in the 2003 and newer models to improve all the problems?

On the website carcomplaints.com the 2003 BMW 745i had the most complaints for its series. The 2002 year was second though. The website is surprisingly informative and worth looking at.
