    We leased one, and I actually really liked it. Fancy for being a budget vehicle.

    But it's German, and my policy is to never own one out of warranty. Returned when the lease was up.

    Leasing was the right move. The amount of relief I felt when my wife came home from the shop and told me the coolant leak was a freeze plug in the block that requires pulling the engine was the best news I ever had about that car, because the repair cost more than the car's value. 130k miles. Fun to drive. When it did... thing spent more time in the shop than Imelda Marcos at the shoe store.

    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    Replaced the water pump on one for my nephew once. I could not believe the amount of hoses and plastic that were in that thing. He actually melted the water pump impeller. After that experience, I vowed to never own one.

    Nothing, and I do mean nothing, compares to how much Ford does not want you to leave your keys in the ignition. I don’t know if I hate the do-do-do or the piezo buzzer more.

    Or the subaru "listen, your seatbelt does not appear to be fastened. I'm going to remind you in a few seconds...forever"

    I take it back, the buzzing would fade away to background after a bit. The chime lasts forever.

    Ford sounds like Blink-182 Adams Song.

    The piezo buzzer sounds like nails on a chalkboard. But also reminds me of riding around with grandpa in his 84 f-150
