    most reliable german car you're ever going to get are the diesels, and VW kind of fricked the reputation of those up in america.

      Diesels after the 1.9TDi became horribly unreliable, not like American diesels are better just look at turds like the 6.0/6.4 Powerstroke. Ironically the American pickups and Euro diesels have the same failure point that makes them unreliable which is a high pressure fuel pump that sends metal through the fuel system when it goes bad (Bosch cp4) and has you replacing everything in the fuel system.

      Do your maintenance and it'll last forever white man.

      Audis are a crap shoot

      I would say late model revised N55 BMWs and B48/B58 BMWs, and late model EA888 2.0Ts (think 2014+). The VWs have to deal with timing chain issues at higher miles + intake carbonization. The BMWs are reliable in the powertrain it's just the rest of the car now that'll kill itself and you can't preventive maintenance a $7000 headlight replacement (iirc the AWD crossovers have Tcase issues)

      Wouldn't touch a V8 Turbo BMW with someone else's dick.

      is mercedes-benz truly that much worse than bimmer and audi?

      Yes, M256 their Turbo 6cyl for example has wiring harnesses that disintegrate at the coil pack connectors.

      Honestly VW/Audi is the most reliable just let down by their insistence on getting the cheapest possible suppliers to the point that half the car is made in PRC.

        I wouldn't say that the 1.6/2.0 TDI is "horribly unreliable" compared to anything except pre-PD.

        >US market
        It's going to depend heavily on the previous owner. Avoid every single base model, it will have been leased to a complete moron that wanted to look rich.

        Mercedes started shitting the bed in the very late 90s/early 2000s. Everything started to be made on a budget starting with the W220.

        are the 90s 3 series reliable?

        E36s are pretty solid, E46s less so (but they're still okay).

      People always say this and yet my coworkers mums X5 is already leaking oil and that piece of shit has less than 5000 miles and is half a year old

        Leaking gaskets are a maintenance issue and if your oil filter housing is leaking at 70,000 miles you clearly didn't do enough oil changes.

            She was clearly supposed to change the oil every 1,000 miles. Again, the owner is at fault and it's a maintenance issue.

    Benz: 2011-2014 C63 AMG is gud. 2011+ E63 AMGs are gud. I think even some M113/M113K cars sneak into your 15 year window.

    Bimmer: N52 was used until 2013ish? Likewise for M57.

    Porsche: 987.2/997.2 is reliable, as is Cayenne 3.2/3.6 (all gens), or 958 4.8 2013-2017.

    For VW, I only know that the TDV6 and VR6 are reliable.

      Ah yes you get to beta test unproven technologies like timing chain tensioners and wiring insulation and direct injection and really bad packaging

      Frick no. BMW started following EU environmental framework and made their rubber/plastic parts objectively worse to every other brand of that era to meet regulations. They also started using FEA/AutoCAD in design to see where they didn't need additional welds/metal on structural components (less materials = better for environment and profits)

      BMW has also bragged about their cars being easy to recycle since the early 1990s when they started following this initiative. Video below is a BMW recycling center in Germany. The manufacturer brags about the cars being easy to recycle.

    The worst cars to come out in recent memory in terms of reliability are Toyotas (new turbo V6 in the tundra). Meanwhile the best Toyotas in terms of reliability to come out recently uses a German engine (B58 in Supra).
