Oookay...the newest car I own is a '94 (Audi), so what's yer point? I have zero interest in just about any car newer than '96 (also an Audi). You need to completely re-frame your car arguments, or STFU

Now my Audi Fox was very good. Right up until the day it burned to a cinder on I-64 because of a "fuel injection issue".

Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.

Ooookayy....... Turn about is fair play. Oh, and btw, here is a chart back to 1994 chart regarding engine reliability. Audi is so low they didn't even bother to rate it or othes as bad...

I saw one of the ones in top pic over here the other day, red with red interior RHD, top down purring along the Gold Coast Hwy. Looked stunning...

You could do someone a hurt with those fins.

Shane....Why Oh why is this amazing manufacturer(MB) so far down your list?

I've found defects that no manufacturer should miss let alone MB.

^Because Lexus raised the bar so high, but only on its rwd cars, the rest are mediocre. Infiniti is gone since Renault took over.

...or, their sample size was too low. VAG was seriously considering pulling out of NA back then, due to mismanagement, poor quality, dismal designs and bad media from the whole "unintended acceleration" debacle.

Dude, I've explained this before...I'm an enthusiast, not a car guy. I'm OCD about certain select chassis, and don't care about much else that's out there. I don't read the automotive press, 'cause I'm willfully apathetic about the rest of the car world. My current freakish obsession list, in pecking order is:
MB -- 124
VW -- T3
Audi -- C4
