They are money pits after 50,000 miles! Stay away from European makes until you have deep pockets! Just the plain facts, i see it all the time. They are sharp rides but dont buy one as your first car IMO.....maybe 'try' to dream about Asian or American cars for awhile..
I've just seen way too many people VERY disappointed with these vehicles! I will stop there!
