Otherwise, stick to hondas.
ya, so you can have cracked manifolds, have your tires collapse under your car - wishbone for real!, over pay for the same car b/c it's starts with an A compared to an N... and a friend here at work has a 1997 Acura 2.2 CL , he had to change his brake lines.... ya... ghey... full one piece piping for all the lines... $1000.00 later....
listen.. point is all cars have quirks... it's just what quirks can you live with and what can you live without...
NO E30 has ever left me stranded ... yes ,things break... but they break in a " still can get you there " kind of way....
