You are asking two separate questions. "Reliability" is a function of one's willingness to accept the cost of preventative maintenance and repair of broken/worn parts. "Economic decision" is based on your ability and willingness to support maintenance and repair.

Any car can be reliable if one takes care of it, not abuse it when driving it, and pay for maintaining it. The economic decision is based on how much the car costs per mile to operate. BMWs cost more per mile to operate as compared to the average.
