Thats like asking "Should draft buy a ferrari?"

Ask yourself certain things

1. What will you be using it for? Daily?
2. What do you want out of it? Purely for status? To be able to say you drive a lexus?
Fuel economy?
3. How much is maintenance? etc..

Your question is too vague which is why you're getting witty replies

you didnt give much to go on. what is the purpose of ur purchase? what criteria do you have for a car? is there anything specific you are looking for in the car?

you will get a better response if u give a less vague question.

I would say that expensive parts and expensive to fix is subjective. You can get parts easily and they cost the same as say, owning an Accord or an Altima. Getting it fixed is another thing and it goes to show how the previous owner maintained their car. Otherwise, they should be very solid cars and should not be expensive to keep so to say.
