                Overcomplicated, indeed. Yet NO RUST or LOOSENED BOLTS anywhere!

                    Usually German cars rank in the midfield when it comes to technical problems, with asian cars in the top ranks. But I think that's not because of German engineering. We have excellent engineers (get a Porsche und you know hat I mean), but lousy project managers that want the best for cheap. Not possible....

                    I drive french cars (Renault), for 20 years now, and I never had big issues

                      20 Years Toyota, no issues at all.
                      There are TOYOTAS and there are the OTHER Asian cars,imo.

                          The only American cars I have nowadays are two that were made in 1970. I won't own any, forget about it. We have 3 Toyotas, an Audi, and a 1972 beetle. Until recently, we had 3 beetles with the oldest being 1966. Periodically, something went wrong with them, you'd get out and do something and got it running and it took you home. It was a continuous sci

                            When I lived in the US and needed a car, every US citizen told me not to get a US car because I'd have a hard time selling it again. So I got a used Honda Civic, 3 door, no AC, no power windows. Rendered me officially poor and was a great insurance against car theft .
