What really pisses me off is when a manufacturer purposely designs a car that can't be worked on by anyone outside the dealership or specialized repair shop. BMW is notorious for have to buy a set of special jack pads to even lift a wheel off the ground...from BMW of course. They supply a jack bc European road regulations say they have to but you can't use it. Audi is no better, nor Porsche or Merc. What's the use of a car I can afford to buy but not maintain? We've all had THAT car at one time or another.

I con fix this car and general maintenance parts are plentiful and cheap. It's clearly designed to have someone with a general understanding of cars be able to access parts and repair them. The car is basic, relatively and it's hard parts are tough.
