Not telling you to buy one, but that list is way shorter than the average vehicle, and none of it is way out unusual. I can think of at least 5 or 10 things about BMW's that are worse, more expensive, or downright dangerous.

The thing to remember is that those are issues reported, and it doesn't mean in any way that they will occur on all cars produced. And you have to weigh the pro's of any car against its con's . . . remember that hardly anyone creates a list of the great things a car excels in, except of course, the manufacturer
