There are a whole lot more things that could go wrong in a top-of-the-line BMW or Mercedes than in your no-frills Kia or Honda.

Their customers demand that their cars offer levels of performance, luxury and technology that push the technological boundaries of its day, it is quite natural that they will be less reliable and cost more to maintain than cheaper cars that stick to cheap and proven technology.
