    All these are luxury cars. You cant compare mercedes and porsches to toyotas. So ofcourse these will be more expensive to buy and maintain. The real advice should be, if you have a middle class job, dont buy a rich guy's car

              Any of those cars is better than best American car. When you spend that kind of money, it's for fun, luxury and safety. No one else offers that level of experience.

                          I have a 2005 Dodge Magnum R/T that I bought about 5 years ago. I paid $6,000 cash for it. Has 153,000 miles. Repairs I had to make on the car:
                          1. Replaced shocks on all 4 corners - $120
                          2. Replaced entire front suspension architecture - $195
                          3. Replaced power steering pump - $12 from a junkyard
                          4. Steering wheel clock spring - $59

                          That is it, and all of that is general maintenance. The only thing that actually broke on the car was the clock spring. Never any engine problems, never any transmission problems, and all electronics still work. On a 15 year old Chrysler product! Funny thing is I can sell it for more than I paid for the thing. V8 Magnums are becoming desirable because the traditional big motor station wagons aren't made anymore, with the exception of maybe 1.

                                And now everybody's happy because they can justify their hatred towards cars they could never afford. Like German cars are piece of s*** and they don't even have money to buy a bike. I've been driving Audi and Volkswagen my whole life I rarely had any issues with them. Certainly never had any issues with engine or transmission. Scotty's just hyping peasants on the channel.

                                        My first car was a Porsche, only money pit if you buy OEM. Thanks to massive production of parts in China, they become fairly cheap. I'm working on Porsche Macan that hit a pole and oil cooler from Porsche is $600, buy it from china factory it's only $70. I would say transmission part is false information seeing they are made by other company like ZF and Aisin Seiki, which Land Rover used ZF 6HP which is used in massive amount of cars from BMW to Ford. Same goes for Aisin Seiki everything between Porsche Cayenne to Jeep Cherokee, which means it's a Toyota Group transmission. No need buy over price VW transmission fluid, just stop by Toyota and pick up same thing for way less!

                                                          ..does this philosophy apply to Panamera too? part of me says either way, if youre going 4 door coupe, money up for the Rapide S & forget about it. but Panamera Turbo @ 1/2 price is tempting.

                                                            my mind tells me, stick with Kaizen Japanese quality standards..but if they weren't so girly & boring now..Acura ZDX, Mark Zuckerberg high IQ sense, but V6 is too slow. it was made for girls.

                                                            my heart is pushing me toward used Range Rover, Panamera Turbo, or lease new G-Wagen, & it's winning the war within me of emotion vs logic.

                                                              excellent advise, my instincts said to just lease the new G-Wagen, & don't deal with the insecurity of owning a used one. Scotty confirmed my instincts are right, get the emotional attachment out of my system, give it back to the dealer if I hate it, swap if I love it, no commitment. my father thinks leasing is just renting, but he dumps so much money out of pocket on repairs, i disagree. both lease & finance are monthly payment, one is driving the brand new most impressive models with repairs included, the other is struggling to keep up & dumping repair costs out of pocket on top of it. rich dad poor dad

                                                                I just wish the Japanese brands would make a ride for guys again..a big Lexus GT or '4door coupe' to rival Panamera, a retro Land Cruiser remake to rival the G-Wagen, something. the big LX is cool but, you pay high to ride the cult following flagship, & at that price, it's too tempting to get something more 'impressive' from the German or British, at half the used price. but with the thousands in repairs, the two even out & it becomes a wash. pay up front for longevity, or pay half that, & deal with the foreign repair premiums.

If you can do a 5 year lease give it back and lease another one for 5 years rinse and repeat that way you always have the newest vehicles

I've owned it less than a full year, and I've already got my investment back... If it's not Toyota, don't even wave it under my nose... I'm NOT buying...
