My ride is pretty stable, it has its quirks, but the car almost eight years old. It has less technology in it than the more modern successors but I feel that if you maintain a car right, then it will run the right way.
Let's face it, a lemon is a lemon, but a good car that is poorly maintained is someone's damn fault.
I know a lot of luxury and/or sports luxury owners who will buy a car, at the lowest possible price they can, cut every corner to not maintain it or take it to the shop, buy the cheapest parts, fill it with regular, so on and so on...then when their cars start to produce problems, they complain about how the brand is a rip off and a the car in question is a big piece of dung.
These cars, no matter how low the prices may drop and depreciate, are still expensive to maintain, even years and years down the line, the parts are still going to be expensive. If you can't afford the parts, mechanic labor and maintenance, you can't afford the car.
The point I'm trying to make is that I think when people complain, most of the time it's either A, because the car is a lemon, or B, it's because they fail to keep up with taking care of it.
I say just get the car if you like it, just because Johnny B. Reviewer says he doesn't like it doesn't mean no one should buy it. If I buy the car I like and get the 'ONE' out of ten that works, I don't care if the other nine don't work, mine does, and I love it. If not, then it's back to the drawing board.
