It's been hashed and re-hashed a million times over, here and on other forums as well. Some people never have problems (which also can be said of any car ever made), some people have lots of problems. That's why you can't use small sample sizes to determine stuff like this, but I'm sure you knew that.

I'm glad you've owned one or two of these without issue, and I'm glad your buddy did too, but it's not magic or some sort of conspiracy that this car ends up on all these lists. Do you get that?

So true. It's amazing how deluded some people on this forum are. Somehow if you've never had a problem your car is bulletproof and everyone else is the exception to the rule. Let's ignore all the published reports from other organizations that show the 335 is horrific with regards to reliability.
