I don't know how reliable is that reliable list of reliable cars from CarMD???
My parents had a very reliable 80s Toyota and dependable 90 Nissan, but not so on their 80s Buick (transmission prob). My current 07 E92 been reliable on the most part minus a dead battery. Fuel pumps was replaced free under recall. Besides minor interior rattle noise, everything is holding up well, running 16k * knock on wood
