"I bought this car very used, because I had little to spend and needed a running vehicle. I did not have a choice so I took this 740il expecting the gas milage to be far worse than it is. Its actually pretty good on the hwy but in town its a little more than I like to admit. I have put a little bit of money into it here and there for repairs; it was well spent. This car has high miles and I have driven it allot since I have had it. It amazes me by starting up every time without hesitation except when the used battery went on it. So I bought another cheap refurbished battery and no problems starting since.
This car needs some work and I have driven it more than I should have and beat on it pretty hard, but it still keeps going. I would buy another 740il and if I could I'd buy one new. I have the service records on this car and it has taken little service to keep it going this long. I drive it daily and I feel secure in this car getting me where I want to go."
"I've had Camreo's,Cadillac's,Firebird's and a Saab. But neither of these cars could come close to the three Bimmer's I've owned, with the power of a Camero and the interior styling of a Cadillac we may have invented the automoblie as well as the assembly line but the German's perfected the quality of an automoblie but we're getting closer..."
Cons: "cup holders broke and are not deep enough."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2
"One of the best riding cars I have ever owned. However, the headliner is saging at the rear window,and the control modual quit working, and the radio does not receive AM stations. To repair these items would cost more than the car is worth."
