Complaint / review text:
I own a 1994 740iL and have lost my transmission twice due to loss of reverse. I continued to drive the vehicle with no reverse and the transmission shop that caused it to wear out. The first rebuild lasted two years. The second time the same transmission failed, I elected to buy a used transmission feeling the issue was something wrong in the original transmission. This transmission has been running for 2 1/2 years.in both failures I lost reverse and the repair shops indicated there was something of poor design that was causing the failures.
