Cars are not built to withstand abuses doesn't matter whether it is 10k or 100k. In reality luxury cars are more prone to abuse due to the highly sensitive gadgets in them. How many times do you think the Camera on the side view mirror can take the hit or park distance on the rear bumper can tolerate knocks? Didn't we all drive cars without these gadgets some 15 years ago? No power doors/windows/seats, no nav to freeze, no moonroof to leak. I remember going to the dealer for oil change and brake services for my 1993 pontiac grandAM. In the last decade, most of my repair shop visits are to fix power window regulator or the power locks.
