I have read some of these reviews and maybe I lucked out. See this is my girlfriends car. Some of the comments are on the money but this car has been a trooper! We've had brake light issues like everyone but so far so good. The paint has not faded, repairs are pretty easy to fix, parts prices are reasonable. We get most of our parts from Pelican and Salvage yards. But gas is the big factor for us ,cost to fill up is $90.00. Love the body style, power and ride but old BMWs still costly to maintain.
This is the absolute worst car I have ever owned. It sits outside on the street due to battery problem the day after getting out of the shop. There are so many problems with the vehicle that they are too numerous to list. One thing to keep in mind, you will always pay for sensors and other devices on the vehicle an expect to pay the equivalent of a car payment every month to keep it on the road.
The main problems with the 1994 BMW 740iL are as follows, drinks a lot of gas. 14.7 mpg, battery under rear passneger seat., must replace brake light switch that is covered under a recall.
Transmission problems are common problems with these cars. "Tranmission Program" translates to about $1750 in repairs at some dealerships. There are several hoses that have to be replaced in order to resolve the colling system issues. $400 a pop is common for many repairs. This car is grossly over engineered compared to other cars that deliver the same performance that are cheaper to maintain. Gas mileage is horrible, but perfomance when the car is functioning is much better. Eletrical issues remain a problem with this model along with the transmission whining sound. I have noticed this with many BMWs of this same model. An improvement since the 1993 version of the automobile, but not by much.
this is my bm nice car.
