Agree with the two previous posts. Another example of poor reliability that can not be corrected with any amount of repair and maintenance is Series I-III Jaguar XJs from an electrical and engine point of view. The Lucas electrics and Jaguar XK 6 cylinder can not/could not be repaired into reliability. They were flawed in design and manufacture. But beautiful and fun. Speaking from experience.

An opposite example is a high mileage (>200k miles) Toyota 4Runner. When things wear out as they do, when parts are replaced on that vehicle it returns to the normal state of being reliable. Those trucks can be kept running for a very long time, when the proper maintenance and repair is done.
