I think you miss my point.

Agree that adults have to be responsible and I cringe at the thought of people all over the country getting bailed out of mortgages they couldn't or didn't want to pay.

But having experienced the auto "dealer hustle" ever since my first car buying experience where the sales guy hid my trade in keys I think luxury brands like BMW ought to do better. Many do but there are also too many stories of sour customer experiences that tarnish the brand. (not just BMW)
