2007 Lincoln MKZ from North America
Lots of repairs once the loan is paid off
Rims don’t hold air so they needed refinishing ($200 per rim).
Airbag recall and airbag light is on.
Suspension noise because parts need replacing.
Seized brake caliper.
Once I finished paying off the car, lots of things started breaking. It needs ball joints and control arms replaced ($1400). I had one hub assembly replaced ($400) because the wheel was making a wobbly wheel sound.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Your title summary is misleading. You did not buy the car new and pay it off in 3-4 years -- you bought it 11 years old with 250K km on it. Any car that old, with that much mileage, is going to need repairs, perhaps a lot, depending on how it was maintained previously!

Put some RTV silicone around the bead of the tires and remount them. Any shop with a tire changer can do it. Sure beats having the rims redone at $200 a piece.

Who finances an 11-year old car? Must have been a B-H/P-H lot.
