Everyone's story will be different, some good some bad, but you can't go by opinions of this board. We all love our car. You won't find any people on a forum board for a vehicle who hate their car!
It all depends on what you can afford. If this car is a stretch for you and you don't have a spare $2,000 hanging around that you can dump on an unexpected repair then I would say don't do it. Everything on these cars are exponentially more expensive than "entry level" vehicles you brought up.
So I will chime in, despite the 5 repair events I had under warranty that would have cost me $5k I love my car!
