just wondering..

I was browsing through the latest Consumer Reports buying guide issue and focused on the automobile reliability ratings. I noticed that BMW and Mercedes seem on the whole to have come out below average.

If they are below average, meaning worse than average reliability as scored in various categories, then what makes them so highly regarded? You see all these commercials touting them as the worlds finest luxury cars but their ratings were lower than Acura, Infinti and Lexus (as well as a lot of other less luxurious brands).

So what gives? Is it just the quest for the status? Most people I've known who owned BMW's didn't even like them. But yet they keep buying them. It has to be something about wearing your label on the inside out.

If you own a BMW or Mercedes, no offense meant by this post.. I was just wondering, is all..
