That being said, there are still tons of issues with the 35i. HPFP, injectors, etc. not solid at all. The diesel seems to be the most sorted of the bunch.

Comparing luxury SUVs, in general, of course, the German brands are going to be ranked lower. Lots of things can go wrong with them. What's interesting is that in the most recent JDPOWER, Mercedes was ranked higher than Acura, Honda, Hyundai. Crazy.

I guess German car owners do put up with some "issues" to have a better driving car. You couldn't pay me to go buy an Infiniti or Acura. BMW/Audi/Mercedes/Lexus. I'll do it all day long.
Newbie question. What does LCI stand for?
