Don't be so sure about not having problems with a Honda Civic. My daughter just bought a brand new one two months ago and it went belly up two days ago. The check engine light came on, a/c quit, radio quit, CD player makes noise and it went into limp home mode.
We are 70 miles from the dealer and my only option is to drive it the 70 miles with it going no faster than 50 miles per hour. They will not send a wrecker or do much to help without limping it in. If this had happened to my new MB they would have sent a rollback to get it or whatever it took to get me taken care of.
NO CAR BRAND EVER MADE IS WITHOUT THEIR PROBLEMS.
Have a great day,
