If I had to buy a new car it would be KIA or Hyundai, hands down. Fortunately, I do not have to buy a new car.
If I had to buy a new car I'd buy an old one.

To me a new car is anything after about 1990.

If I had to buy a new car, it's would be a RWD Motoren Werke product. At least they drive nicely. After the 3 year warranty is is up, it's down the road.

Weird faults are common with abs/sac etc being linked to the throttle/vacuum dads old Nissan cashcow was flicking up ABS errors and also the yellow light of doom and reduced power.

Turns out a blocked pipe to the DPF sensor was causing the lot.

This was after I pulled the ABS pump off and sent it away with no fault found. He then had four new ABS sensors and cabling fitted too.


Less annoying tag line.
Just when I thought I was out they dragged me back in.

Jumping the shark springs to mind. Are they concepts? As you can tell it’s been a while since I looked at new stuff.

They are production models and BMWs new design language.

They also seem very unapologetic about it in their marketing. Bizarrely attacking boomers, which (especially in America) is one of their main demographic.

They also are planning an advertising campaign to shame you into a warranty, if you have one that's older than 3 years old:
