we once had a VW Beetle, it came with the job when I worked in Nigeria. It was new when we got it and 18 months later it was a wreck. Perhaps partly due to it being manufactured in Brazil but far more to do with the Nigerian roads, or lack of them.
Also have had two Porsches, first was a 911SC with the compression bumpers that did not enhance its looks but it was other than that a great car. Then my present car is another 911 the Carrera sport, which I love.
