I think it's an issue of no one posts when everything is running smoothly.
I am not afraid of miles on a car if it has been taken care of and has a good reputation for reliability, quality, etc. I have a truck with 180K miles and counting, my car had 155K when it got totaled,and the vehicle before that had 300K before I got rid of it. That being said, I do not want to end up with a problem vehicle as I will be driving it daily. I can wrench on my own vehicles but I don't want to make it a part time job.

I have heard of many nightmare stories of aftermarket warranties being confusing and not covering something.

I agree that you see more negative in forums. Trying to feel out the likely hood of having the same issues is always the tough part.

I will probably take to safe way and buy my neighbor's 3 series.
