I would not want a single one of those vehicles. I'm surprised the Prius with the Obama/Biden sticker option isn't one of them. I've been seeing a lot of those driving around this summer.

Wow, I had to read the Buick Regal section to see how it made it to this list and here is the last paragraph:
a buyer writes. "You certainly can get a speeding ticket." One common quibble: the lack of an interior trunk release.
So I gather, a Buick Regal can exceed the speeding limit..Hay, I must get that car today.

from a mechanical perspective, i've always thought that BMW makes great cars. I could care less what Edmunds or anyone says. After 3 BMWs (and several others in my family), i know they make great cars. Just stay away from N54/55 and you should be fine. It's the interior rattles and other BS that makes me question quality. If the interior was built like the rest of the car, i would have 0 issues with this car.

The Prius comes standard with a Coexist sticker. The Obama/Biden sticker is part of the Smug Package (072).

i had an audi S5 right before my current M3 and it lasted all of 11 months and 3,900 miles....in was a fantastic car except for the fact it was about as exciting as watching paint dry..oh and speaking of paint, the paint sucked..if you walked near it, you would get a chip

I had a 2011 S4 for 88 days and I could not wait to get out of the POS. Major issues and plenty of problems the only thing I miss is the gas mileage.
Thank G for my new 2011 BMW M3 Comp package

A Land Rover made it to the list? Not trying to hate. But obviously, these people did not rate their car based on reliability.

They picked the 3-series as a used car best bet.

The e9x's orange peel isn't something I would write home about but BMW does give you the fun factor over the Audi.
