We have a Chevrolet and Buick, both 13 years old and -0- trouble beyond a burned out tail light here and there since new. We had Acuras back in the 80s: very reliable engines but fragile hardware (rattles everywhere and brake calipers that needed replacing often ... thin sheet metal rusted at the sight of salt), also $200 valve adjustments required every 7.5k. The Americans have needed only oil changes, tires, and batteries -- not *even* spark plugs to-date. With TLC they still look and drive brand new. Our friends with German cars love the handling and build quality but have way too many loaner car stories to tell.
