AN EXPERT mechanic has revealed the car brand he would NEVER buy.
Scotty Kilmer has worked on motors for 55 years and his trusty opinion is reflected by the 5.9million subscribers he's amassed on social media.
In a video posted to TikTok, the helpful car guru told his followers: "Today I'm going to rate European cars.
"Number one would be Volvo, even though they are owned by a Chinese company, they're still solid built vehicles that can last.
"Number two is Volkswagen, which of course also owns Porsche and Audi.
"Sure they're not as reliable as the old Volkswagen Beetle but they can be decent cars in the short run.
I’m fed up with ‘selfish’ petrol drivers parking cars in electric charging spots
Our town is ruined by electric car parks – we’ve got nowhere to leave our motors
"Number three is Mercedes-Benz, sure they got their butts kicked by Lexus but they're more dependable than BMW.
"They're fun to drive but the BMW logo most people say stands for Big Money Waster.
"And last on the list is Jaguar Land Rover, if you like spending money on expensive cars and super expensive repairs, get yourself a Jaguar."
Scotty has offered other words of wisdom, from his 55 years experience.
