I used to work for a car review website which gathered owners reviews. There was not a single model manufactured by any company on our records, which did not have negative reviews relating to faults developed. We always suspected there was an element of expectation on the part of the owners so Alfa or Skoda owners for instance weren't so inclined to burst a blood vessel at a little time off the road, whereas Audi or Lexus owners expected utter infallibility and so were more inclined to shout about it.
My '02 156 has given me trouble free motoring for 2 years and 24k with just maintenance. My girlfriend runs a recently acquired Audi TT, and if you read the forums, its pretty much a time bomb waiting to go off.
