I have had great luck with BMW. I bought an E46 new in 2004 and kept it for 15 years and 195k miles. I didn't have any major issues and did all of the maintenance and minor repairs myself. I also have a good relationship with a local indi shop. All of these things kept the cost of ownership way down.

I purchased a 2016 CPO 320I in 2019 with 32k miles for $17k. I couldn't pass up that bargain plus I have the CPO warranty through December 2020. I obviously didn't buy it for power but with a JB+ for a nice boost plus Sport+ coded to keep it in the meaty part of the power band it's actually very fun to drive. I added an Android Auto mmi which modernized the interior and the overall build quality is good. I love my 320I.
