2011 BMW 3 Series 335d 3.0L turbo diesel from North America
If you can find a low mileage 335d, buy it!
None so far, though I do have a small issue with the front door panels rubbing on the dash. Also the doors creak.
Great car, love driving it. The quietest, smoothest, most refined car I've driven with effortless power and great efficiency.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

The 335D is crap. I bought a new one in 2011. Loved the performance, but they had some bugs that never were worked out. Therefore they discontinued them. Carbon buildup is a huge issue. Needed to be de-carbed at 130,000. Then at 140,000 the computer gave me 200 miles to get a new catalytic converter. I ordered it from BMW in Sept 2015, back ordered until at least February 2016. Complete bull. They did nothing for me. I traded it in and grabbed a used Jeep off the dealer lot. BMW has very poor customer relations. Do not buy a BMW. Only lease until the free 50,000 service is up and then give it back. Owning these is not possible.

You hit the nail on the head, as the fellow you replied to says before you, if you can find a 335d with low mileage, buy it, why not. Meaning 5000 miles yes, anything above no.
BMW are building to customer's expectations; now dispose of this, dispose of that.

I have noticed quite a few people buying a new Honda after having a BMW with repair cost issues. True cost of ownership has to reflect maintenance $.
