    Any car has problems but benzine are always less problems than diesel. As for W12 get ready to remove engine when you have to replace the temperature sensor which has a higher failure rate. Yes, REMOVE THE ENGINE. Cost for this job is around 2000 euro depending where and who is handling the job. When the engine is removed is recommended to replace all sensors situated back there to void any trouble in future.
