Its just jealousy.

BMW are very reliable.

Anyone who is fed up with the reliability of their BM
please just pass the keys to me.

Unfortunately its usually the people that don't own
them that complain how unreliable they are.

We get a lot of people who hate living in condos too!

Bcos if you don keep a BMW for more than 3 years, its usually problem free or the AD will take care of the problems under warranty. After 3 years or 100,000km, the wear and tear items will be due for replacement, thats when you can see leaks here and there.

If you spend to do up all the wear and tear items, will be able to last you another 3 years or so.

Quite ok la or so I heard.

I think for any make/model, if you dont keep the car for more than 3-4 years, usually will be problem free and not many wear & tear problems surface. Dont think only apply to BMW.

To me it is reliable. I take good care of my 2 Bimmers and they take care of me. I have spent on average of less than $3k maintenance a year on each car and they still run sweet even though i drive the hell out of them. If you see an E65 730i on the roads running around as if it is a 3er, that's me.

They are an affordable, reliable, practical, fun and fast way to get around. There are certain quirks like how the gearbox jerks when you stomp on the accelerator from standstill and having to top up engine oil, but then every car has its quirks. It is just a matter of getting used to and knowing when to do certain things and when not to.

One thing is, you cannot stinge on service or neglect a Bimmer like you can a Toyota or Honda. It needs proper scheduled maintenance on every mechanical part of the car.

My take is: if you are unwilling to spend time and money to properly maintain a Bimmer, you are gonna get problems. If you are willing to, they treat you very well.

I think BMW is unreliable due to driver issue. Some who bought BMW know nuts about cars and has lots of $ to spend and want status. So a good car under a person who know nuts about car. What worst is some don't even know need to regularly go for servicing until when car has problem and wonder why BMW so unreliable. This is what I think .. ( Correct me if I am wrong )
