Exceptional ride but expensive to maintain

Pluses - Extremely smooth, quiet and comfortable ride; small turning radius; very strong, quick to accelerate and reliable engine. Negatives - Electronics unreliable on various features (seat, antenna, fuel oxygen, some engine component and sensor wiring; air conditioning develops problems on regular basis and needs frequent expensive repair. brake pads and components wear out frequently. Bad front seat drink console. Car needs very regular TLC/service maintenance to maintain the quality ride experienced. Parts and service can be expensive. Very much liked the car and features just not the expenses required to maintain the frequent services and expensive air conditioner service.
