I'm sure you don't. It's amazing how you found a partial paragraph in the entire article. Keep in mind I don't agree with everything on the list either.

Hey, I didn't write the article and I honestly didn't even read the entire thing before posting it. It's only supposed to be food for discussion not arguement.

Okay, just so there's no confusion how about if you explain what you meant by "As they say in the computer ghetto lingo, "Ain't that a 3i7c4!"

I was commenting that BMW did better save for the 7 series and the X5 were worse than average.

Now...a few posts back I posted that I own a 7 series...hence the "Aint that a Bitch" comment...Or, what am I about to encounter that the article alludes to. I have not had any problems with our 1997 740i "Flagship"...thus far.

And I would say that has to do with what we discussed before. I get the impression you take extremely good care of your cars, and if there is a minor problem you take care of it before it becomes major. If more owners were like you there would be alot less people pissed off about their "shitty" car.

What really amazes me is that there are no Kia's on the list. Maybe if you buy a Kia you're not smart enough to bitch when it breaks.

I wouldn't say "extremely" good care, but I do have their regular maintenance done and oil changes every 3k-4k miles...the dealer makes sure to remind me...otherwise I'd forget like the rest of normal America.
