    2012 740li reliability

    So I love the 750li but just too many horror stories and Im not rich. So now Im looking at a 2012 740Li.

    Are there any reliability issues with 2011 to 2013 740lis?

    What are the best years? I like the 2012 body style.

    What are the commin issues?

    I had a 2011 740Li and had issue after issue with it. Engine always would go into limp mode under heavy acceleration. Had to replace the blower motors at 55k, mechatronics at 80k, and the rear suspension failed around 100k. I tried to maintain it the best I could but after getting three 6k repair bills, that was it for me and bought a Lexus instead. I bought the 740Li with about 50k on it and it was just a disaster.
