Unlucky BMW 7-Series Owner Publicly Shames His Faulty Car

If you spend over a 100 grand (of anything) on a saloon car, you'll expect it to be luxurious, well equipped, nicely built but most importantly, to be working! Come to think of it, every new car is expected to be working regardless of the price.

Well, that's not what happened to one very unlucky owner of the latest uber-luxurious 750 Li that started causing problems after just 18.000 km (11.000mi). Since then it just kept breaking down every now and then, it made the owner write down the side of it all the problems he had to fix.

Every few thousand kilometres there was something, like turbo coolant hoses, dashboard failure, engine failure and replacement, steering wheel failure and replacement, suspension, cabin clatter etc. The list goes on and it's a serious list at that.

By any measure, this is a lemon car - a vehicle (often new) that turns out to have several manufacturing defects affecting its safety, value or utility. And I'm fully aware that a bad product can sneak through for every company, but when you pay this much for it, it hurts much more than that exploding Samsung.

Also, in the USA, Canada, Australia and Singapore there is a lemon law that provides a remedy for purchasers of cars and other consumer goods in order to compensate for products that repeatedly fail to meet standards of quality and performance. But judging by the price sticker on the side of the car, the owner is from EU which has no such laws. Bad luck Brian.

So, what would' you have done if you had the same problem? Have you ever had a lemon car? Let me know in the comments!

  • The N63 issues has started from 2009. Bmw is still at the same point 10 years ago with this engine... how does it possible? Such a shame. Silence in EU is pure scandalous, no “customer care package” here, a sweet name called for a fucking problem.

  • Also the BMW logo and slogan on the fender is rather hilarious. ‚Driving pleasure‘ 😂🤣

    With 12 defects and various replacements including the wole f*ing engine you’re not gonna be too pleased after spending 127.000€

    • Price of the car is what makes this story interesting in the first place. No one would care if it was Dacia (Not saying that Dacias are badly built)
