if that is competing then..
idk im not saying one generation is better than the other IMO no car at this price point or higher should be at risk but maybe its my fault for thinking cars shouldnt have so many silly issues?
i guess many ppl dont care because they wont own the car for that long.
But what are their competitors doing? If everyone else is making cars that are more durable, then they will do the same. It seems that you can expect the same from MB, Jaguar, Audi, you name it. If you want durability, you go cheap and cheerful. I'm not excusing BMW, and I only know them, but you guys out there with Mercedes's and Audis, how do they compare?
