Yeah, but Mercedes rust!
People write about terrible experiences they have with ALL cars, and if you believed it all you'd never buy anything but a Toyota.
I was about to say that's not me, but I do actually own a Toyota, just not a very typical Toyota. It did have a ticking time bomb that went off.
Anyhow, I've owned 25 cars, and they all have things wrong with them. Recently though, I got a 2011 Passatt TDI for commuting, and it's been quite a revelation. It feels like it's been really well engineered, developed and built. I'm impressed and have a lot of confidence in it, and on the basis of that experience, I've decided to get an Audi for my weekend car. I'm going to miss what ABC can do though. The Audi has DRC, and it's just not real McCoy, regardless of what the marketing says.
