At least it's not as clear as it used to be. Cars that used to be good aren't so much, cars that weren't so good are much better and it's hard to sort through. A part of it is that cars have just gotten so complicated I don't think ANYONE can make them truly bulletproof. In the two years I had my Subaru I spent a lot more money and had more problems than I did with my previous '98 900SE which had 150K on it when I traded. To be honest an older Saab is probably a lot cheaper to own than many would guess, although I'm not sure how long that will continue. As they get more and more complicated it'll be tougher and more expensive to repair them (think new 9-5). For that reason alone I can't think of ANY new European cars (other than a maybe 9-3) I would buy new with the idea of putting 200K on it. At the moment my plan is to simply lease a new car for the length of the warranty and then get another one. That opens up a lot of cars that I wouldn't necessarily want own long term. Hell, I'd lease a Maserati with no worries if I could afford it.
