I inferred nothing. you read into something that was not there. I have had problems that warranty took care of with BMW, but not within the first year of ownership. that was what I posted.You wrote that in your post #53....its exactly what YOU said. The inference is simply that you have had an issue with an Acura, but not BMW. Statistically, you could have had the same issue with BMW, but you did not. Pure and simple.
No manufacturing process of any kind has a 100% success rate.
Of course you are the one to decide whether or not to live with your POS, I never suggested otherwise. If I had the same issues as you with my MDX, then I would likely also feel as you do. As I have said many times, in my opinion, its not whether there are problems with a product because surely there will be instances of manufacturing errors, but what really matters to me is how the manufacturer handles the situation.
Yes, BMW are well known to have issues that are expensive when they AGE. Atleast during the first year, all my bimmers were reliable and fun to drive.
