Well maybe Volvo could have been a little more tactful but he does have a point …
Buying a car is an individual choice based on your own wants and financial abilities, which only you can know.
Further, aside from the few “known stinkers”, quality and reliability out of the factory is remarkably similar across manufacturers and models.
And finally, with a used car reliability is mostly a matter of the age, wear and maintenance of the specific car you’re considering.
So if you’re looking for general advice and opinions you’re at the right place but if you’re a knowledgeable owner able to do at least some of your own work, asking a group to differentiate between the reliability of a used Toyota or Lexus (similar cars, both made by Toyota), well you’re going to be the best judge.
BTW If you think Volvo is harsh now, then your first full time job in the “real world” is gonna knock your socks off
