the 745 is exactly what a BMW should be. an expensive german vehicle with features, performance, and handling . the 745 like all BMW's requires a good deal of up keep. suspension and cooling system are BMW trademark issues. Car is fantastic just be ready to foot the bill. remember your buying a vehicle that was in excess of 80k when new. this car is not going to be repaired at gas station. if you try to have it repaired in a cheap way it will cost you in the end...

Think twice before buying 2002

In December 06, I bought a 2002 745 Li with a little over 70K, still within warranty. Since then the car has spent a total of two weeks in the shop. First, the Tire pressure monitor failed-needed major software downloads. Then a service engine soon light came on. Two days before I was scheduled to bring it in, the auto-level module, the EDC module and the braking module all showed failures. Per BMWNA, of the 57 months this specific car has been in service, 20 of those months show it has been in for service for the same type of failures. 2002 was a problem year per the BMW dealer

I bought a used 745 from an individual seller. Have it for 4 years. It has over 10 thousand miles already but it still runs like new. It has some minor problem but nothing more than my other cars. It cost much less to keep up with the maint. than i expected. I don't think there's any other car that could perform like this model. I had a 5 series before years ago and it's not even close to this.

Performance and luxury

by from L.A. on April 23, 2010

I had a 5 series before the 7 series and I love the 7 even more. The performance and speed is incredible but I could enjoy the comfort and smoothness of the driving at the same time.

Fantastic features and incomparable innovation make this euro-luxury sedan an incredible vehicle. The list of standard features is truly impressive and when you add other items like cooled front seats, park assist, soft close door operation, thoughtful entryway lighting, two part key system, and the voice command system you have the car of the future. BMW has not overlooked performance and handling either. This car has the softest ride and most quiet interior cabin of any car I've driven. I'm a fan for life!

what more can I say, a powerful comfortable classy machine built to last forever. BMW hit a homerun with the 745i. 2002 was the first for this owerful V8. With the optional 19inch tires and wheels, rear wheel drive and appropriate gearing, the car has get up and go. The suspension is properly tuned and the ride smooth. The car handles as it should and has a classy look that the whole family can ride in and enjoy.

I purchased this car used at 50,000 miles. The 1st four months were great but i've had nothing but problems ever since. At 93,185 miles the car is pretty much inoperable. Oil, power steering, coolant, transmission leaks. Head light unit replaced, parking brake malfunction, water pump replaced. All these problems after i purchased it. Now i can't sell it because of all the problems. NEVER again. Lexus here I come.
