Why expensive cars aren't always reliable

Why Luxury Cars Don't Need To Be Reliable
It's Too Complicated, It Won't Last, It's A Mechanical Nightmare?

How do cars work? It's a simple question, though the answer is quite complicated. And it varies tremendously based on what car we're talking about. A $20,000 compact is far more simple than the $155,000 Mercedes S560 Cabriolet driven in this video. With that extra cost comes luxuriousness, the latest technology, and all kinds of features that most drivers will never even know the car has.

Often, complexity is associated with unreliability, and though they may often correlate, that doesn't mean complexity causes unreliability. In the case of luxury cars, it's important to consider who the buyer is. In this video, we'll discuss why it may be a win-win for both manufacturers and consumers to have expensive cars that aren't necessarily reliable.
