Living in Germany means cars are a BIG topic. An ever bigger topic if you get a bunch of men together who have been forbidden to talk about work. Talking about car repairs leaves them all with high blood pressure and this <> close to a heart attack.
I´d go over that warrenty with a fine tooth comb and have it checked out. Here we can have a car checked out by ADAC (similar to AAA.) If hidden problems crop up, then back to the dealer I´d go.
Dh loves fast and unusual cars. We´ve had quite a few and each one has meant money being thrown out the window. Having to pay a mortgage and having the luxury of a house finally broke that!
If I´m asked here what my favorite car is, then I always say a company car! Dh will be having one with his new position. How nice that will be only to have to take care of one car.
Sue, my FIL´s girlfriend has a Mini. We all love it. She doesn´t drive it much and lets us borrow it everyonce in awhile. It´s a fun car and she´s had absolutely no problems with it.
