In the end, you can get a lemon with any brand (even though certain manufacturers seem to have more than their fair share of lemons).
As an old friend of mine who was in the used car business all his life always said "It doesn't matter if its a house or a car....things are gonna tear up and you're gonna have to spend money on it".
There's a similar quote on those lines, "If it has t*ts or wheels, it's going to cost you money".
