My parents used to herd problems on their Renaults almost until they became undriveable, otherwise they'd be at the garage more often than at home.
Then they bought a Honda Civic and never had a single issue in 7 years.

The Renaults were relatively easy to repair. But guess what my parents preferred.
A good design is reliable AND serviceable. It isnít a question of either / or.
