At between $1000 and $1500 a MONTH this is CHEAP? If so, I'd hate to see the "expensive" ones.
What planet are you guys from?
Good grief. As an economist, I don't consider any of these cars to be "cheap" to own. Who writes this drivel?
The title of this page is 7-cheap-to-own luxry cars. There was no speak of quality of the cars. Also, there was no mention of where the vehicles place of construction was. Two of the cars are Korean made and many others were fabricated in Europe. This is what is wrong with America. People do not have ability to think for themselves. Many are elitists and feel as if America is the one and only country with things made of high quality. The reality is that, in car industry, the US companies have been far behind the quality curve for many years. The "junk from japan" (priceml), has been of higher quality and value for the past two decades.
anyone else sick and tired of seeing these love and dating comments in amongst comments on the articles presented? can't anything be done about those posts?
american cars are on a par with many euro cars today. quality has improved greatly and repairs are infrequent. i find it uncomfortable sitting and driving in a japanese car. i think they are made for smaller people. couldnt wait to get rid of my nissan rogue that i leased. give me a full sized american car anytime or even a mid sized. for business i own 2 dodge grand caravans. one a 2005 with 175,000 miles, the other a 2010. no complaints , good value for the money.
besides, all those japanese cars look the same.
I and my spouse have a Lincoln Town car and have had several and find that it is a very good car on gas mileage and great ride . If the lincoln town car isn't a luxury car in america , don't have one. We have always had to buy used town cars but they have all been great. The one we have now gets from 23 miles per galon up to 27 miles per gal. I hate that Ford Motor quit makeing them. If I could afford it I would have the last one made.

None of these are that cheap/inexpensive. People who can afford luxury cars shouldn't think about the cost. Those who can't afford them should focus on something safe, reliable and economical. Those on the cusp shouldn't let themselves get seduced by the luxury car mystique that they go beyond their means unless they really think so little of themselves. There's too many TV shows and movies filmed in Los Angeles so you think everyone must own a car that costs as much as your house in Florida. There's better ways to spend your money.
If you plan on keeping a car for a long time, Mercedes is the one to own. I have worked on cars all my life and when you look below the skin, you see all the extras that Mercedes puts into to their cars to make them rugged and long lasting. Here are a few things that I can think of.
o ground wires to every electrical device
o extra long oil drain plug to prevent stripping
o silver plated contacts on electrical relays, etc
o access holes on wheel rims for precise alignment.
o dual latches on hood
o rubber jacking pads on chassis
If you look at the statistics for cars that are on the road the longest, Mercedes always tops the list.
