Luxury Cars are Money Pits

There’s little denying that foreign luxury models can become money pits for car owners. In earlier articles we’ve learned that after a luxury vehicle has passed its 5-year/60,000-mile warranty, car owners are typically quick to sell them off and move onto a new model. And for good reason. Because this is when you can expect multiple high-cost repairs to start kicking in that---even if bought at a much lower than new car price---can still greatly exceed a used car’s true value. In other words…a Money Pit.

That was message in a recent Scotty Kilmer YouTube channel episode where Scotty discusses what you can expect if you buy a used BMW that includes the problems that may occur and how much it cost one owner of a BMW X5 he showcases as an example.

Follow along with Scotty and listen to his reasons on why you should probably avoid ever buying one.
