Hi rmmagow.

Unfortunately the perfect car has not been invented
Wether you buy a new or a used car,you'll always
have something or another that fails.
With a new car it will take longer,depending on
how you maintain the car but you can be sure that
it will require major work sometime in its life,just the
nature of the beast.
With a used car it all depends on how the PO
maintained the car.
But then again nothing lasts forever and mecanical
parts do wear out.
If it has full records then that helps,but if not then
you might be looking a the biggest POS on this planet.

Just look at the bottom of this post.
Owner bought brand new.
It is a '00 430ML.
Owner say it has been in for repairs a total
of 60 days in 4 years.

Then you have the other side of the coin.
There are people here on the forum that have
had their cars for many years and never had any
real major repairs.
