If the car is out of warranty, German cars are generally going to cost significantly more than non-German cars.

BMW...just do research on make and model you want and see what future problems will come up and what mileage.

Out of those 3 BMW will be the most expensive to repair. They dont call them (B)roke (M)an (W)heels for a reason.

I own an Audi and Benz, and I have 2 older german cars. A 95 s class and 96 A6 quattro. I can tell you up front as others have said german luxury cars are expensive to repair period if something breaks. When I got my Audi I had to do the timing belt and waterpump since the car had 120k when I got it. That set me back $1400 right off the back and this is basically labor since with the Audi they have to take the whole front end off to change it to get to the timing belt, theres no space in front given how they place the motor. Other then that ive had no problems with my Audi and its approaching 140k now.

My Benz was doing good until it developed an oil leak, from my reading and based on the engine I have I was told this is a common problem with 320's or i6 engines of this era, they develop a headgasket leak which can cost about 1500 to fix im told. I havent put it in the shop so I dont know if it is a headgasket leak or not, could be an oil pan leak which would be MUCH cheaper to fix then a headgasket. Oh my benz has 168k and looks very good given its age. German quality cant be matched by any other nation that builds cars. There quality is highest which is why they have high resale value.

Either way, if you dont have the money to repair them DONT buy none of them. Get a lexus instead since its nothing but rebadge toyota or a acura. One of them fake luxury cars that arent much higher to fix then there cheaper siblings.

Oh guess which car is the cheapest to fix that I own. My old 93 camaro z28. I can do the repairs on that thing myself (still a pita) but its simple fix.

LOL, no offense man but thats completely false. they actually have the lowest resale value for the exact reasons listed above. when they are out of warranty, they cost an arm and a leg to repair. a clutch on a 2010 audi A4 cost around 2500k and 1200 to install. a clutch on any japanese car cost around 200-300 and probably another 300 to install lol.

Japanese cars are known to hold the highest resale value. honda, nissan, toyota, and subarus hold the highest resale values. BMW's, Benz's and Audi's hold the lowest.

if the OP is worried about maintenance costs, i would recommend either a japanese car or a Hyundai.

EDIT: also, i dont know about german quality being the best since german cars, specially audi's and VW's with their electrical problems, have major issues with high mileage. german engineering is the best (as far as engines go), but their reliability isnt as high as japanese cars.
