Unsafe BMW Cars

BMW - the car for people who overpay - has a few safety issues, resulting in $40,000,000.00 in fines. Yes, Forty Million. Plus the costs of fixing the problems.

With so many other choices, why are there so many bummers in Fairfax?

In the mid-level arena, BMW is ok. Bang for the buck, Infiniti is so much better than the others.

Said bang for the buck. Lexus is overpriced for the power. Compare 2016 IS 300 F Sport with the Q50. The Lexus has 25 less HP and costs $5,000 more. Options, etc are basically all the same.

Only a moron would pay for an overpriced Honda (Acura), Datsun/Nissan (Infiniti), or Toyota (Lexus). They are a dime a dozen around here anyway.

> Earlier in the year, the agency fined Fiat Chrysler twice for failing to report safety violations

the USA taxpayers have bailed out Chrystler (NOT italy) 3x. also after the 3rd loan Chrystler loaned money to Fiat, who use the money to revamp Ferari (a new stock factory instead of custom build) and install dealers in Wash DC, as well as other italian jobs/factories

after this, italy walked in to A DELEWARE court, much in debt, and claimed to the judges that "Fiat owns chrystler"


some of us have memories that are not full of the crap italian lawyers are made of

Not to be confused with Chrysler, the automobile manufacturer, owned by Fiat.

What I'm hearing in your post is that you work less than part-time, drive a spic'd-out honda civic and can't afford a higher-end car. It's ok. Drive what you can afford.

Any BMW with an Asian, black, or under-25 driver is unsafe.

$10M fine. $10M to fix the problems that they had to fix anyways. The other $20M provisional. Yes they really took it to BMW.

I am very well-endowed and therefore don't need a BMW, Porsche, Bugatti, or other compensator like you small men.

It's not all about HP. Lexus makes higher quality cars versus Infiniti, period. All Jap luxury cars are pretty decent though. I'll take an Infinit over BMW/Merc unreliable German trash.
