    Just remember, you need a lot of luck in buying used cars, some work for years without problems and some don't.
    I disagree. A car's long term reliability (esp german) has mostly to do with care of ownership. My advice is make sure the car has a full service history or owner log. Do some research into proper fluid intervals, weaknesses (bmw cooling system and bushings for examples) at the forums, and always get a ppi (pre-purchase inspection) at an in dependent specialist.

    The cars are audi a4 quattro, bmw 325xi, and merc c-class 4matic. All are good, just depends what u want. My vote is audi - best awd system imho.

    Even if you had two of the exact same car with the same history you can have different results from the car, one working well and one not.

    There is some truth to that. For example, late model mustang manual trans, e46 bmw auto trans, and mini cvt failures due to manufacturer defects. but that can be avoided with some proper research. So your original assertion that it takes lots of luck is false imo if you take the time and energy. Avoid the problematic makes/models, buy the best maintained, documented car for the price u can find (note that most dealers do not have this), get the ppi, do the needed maintenance, and there is a very good chance it will last a long time.

    You are definitely right on that. Everybody will agree that a well maintained car has a much higher chance of lasting longer.

    Best buy an Audi! Best european car quality! Bmw isn't so good and neither is Mercedes. And Audi has the best looks of course.

    This guy wants a German make. I would agree that German cars are probably better than the Japanese cars.
