Probably the Mercedes than the BMW than the Lexus and that's all contingent on the model though , Lexus has a real great reliability and dependability rating and have for years on end , probably has the least amount of problems out of the three

Honestly don't get any of them. The repairs will kill you. I got a Mercedes C230. The repairs are pretty expensive. The first time I took it to the stealership they charged me 65$ for a windshield wiper blade that wasn't even broken. A car is not an investment. It depreciates immediately. You are better off investing in land. Find a gently used car driven by an older couple and be content with the money you saved.

Depends on the BMW and Mercedes and the repair but typically Mercedes service work at a dealer costs more as do parts but not by much.  In the aftermarket a Mercedes probably costs a little less due to the ubiquity. Also the more complicated the car to more expensive it is going to be a 750i is going to cost more to repair than a C280.

Do you really need to ask if maintaining a Toyota costs less than a Mercedes or BMW?

Only retards get maintenace done at dealerships and then bitch about how they got overcharged. What'd you think was gonna happen?

There are plenty of independent shops that do quality work without dealership price tag.

Perfect example is mercedes dealer wanted $900 for front brakes & rotors on my gf's c230. Independent shop did it for $479 with Mercedes parts.

I was young back then. I learned my lesson. Its still an expensive car to maintain and definitely not worth it, unless you have a company and can write it off or your loaded to the gills.

I did the same thing with a cts-v. Wow what a piece of shit, always in the shop. I dont even like thinking about how much $ I wasted. I put 15k miles on it and sold it for 25,000 less then I bought it for. Nowdays I only ride a motorcycle.

Of course when your young you want to impress people, and get them thinking your wealthy. So you go out and blow a shit load of $ on a car, when in reality your just an average chump with less money because you bought a stupid car.

Cts-v is über gay. Especially with the plethora of other vehicles that are better at that price range.

I just get a new BMW every 4 years when the warranty ends, so I spend 0 in expenses for 4 years, they cover everything even the windshield wipers. You can do this when you have worked hard all your life and earn it.

So? It's a 4 door sedan with a big engine...GAY. Just like The m5.

But to each their own.

I prefer a 911 because it has PLENTY of balls, excellent fuel economy for daily driving and it doesn't get mistaken or lost in the mix of other vehicles like the base CTS or base 5 series which plenty of soccer moms drive.

The Lexus will only cost you oil changes, tires, filters and brakes. It will run perfect for many years. The BMW will be in the shop constantly. The Mercedes is like throwing your money out the window for routine maintenance.

I had Toyota that had one repair in 17 years for a water pump. The basic routine maintenance I did myself. I sold that car and the kid driving it had put on so many miles without any trouble. The Lexus is a fancy Camry. It should run perfect if you just change the oil with Mobil one every 5K.
