Not sure warranty coverage is a factor in determining reliability itself. It's a factor in considering how much of a burden a potential reliability issue will be for the customer.
so as someone who wants to trade up to an E90 from an E46, what common issues are there besides the HPFP and valve lifter tick, both issues for which a recall was issued?
