Bought my 07 in June with 21 K miles and now have 33 K with no issues at all. Sorry I can't give you a longer term review.

reliability

I`m pretty much the same as USAF really. 2007 car bought in June 2010. Car is in with the dealer for the first time today for once over, brake fluid change and cabin pollen filters so may know more later or tomorrow. I have had ZERO problems in the 17,000 miles I have done.

M6 has proven to be quite reliable, in Ajax's unbiased opinion. A good Stealership relationship is important, as with any vehicle.

I`ve been dying to ask Mr. Ajax...why refer to yourself in the third person? Shameless self aggrandisement I presume, as is the want of an Illeist such as yourself and Julius Caesar? Good luck I say! kinggf

Ajax often prefers the use of third person because it tends to imply external observation. Since Ajax's opinions are almost 100% unbiased, such speech seems appropriate. Never cared much for Julius Caesar, although Ajax has frequented his casino, and loves his salad.

Mark is trying to figure out how to refer to himself in the 4th person...

Service history of my 2010 M6 (about a year of use):

The 1200 mile service
Had a tire blow out (not really a reliability issue, but it was the only time the M6 went on a flatbed truck to the dealership)
The O2 sensors on the exhaust cat (both right and left at different times) were replaced.
Normal oil change
Left passenger door handle got loose and new parts were required.
Windshield rubber trim strip replaced (a piece of road debris hit the windshield - again not a reliability issue)

So, the only reliability issues were the O2 sensors and the door handle.

Some languages, including Algonquian and Salishan, divide the category of third person into two parts: proximate for a more topical third person, and obviative for a less topical third person. The obviative is sometimes called the fourth person. Unfortunately, 4th person is not possible in English at this time. However, language, like automobiles, is an evolving phenomena.

e.g. Ajax can imagine one's virtual Internet persona, referring back to one's actual self in the fourth person, in a conversation betwixt the actual self and the virtual self.

Thinking about this is giving Ajax a first person headache.

Sounds like arguing with yourself (but without being there to referee). Think I'll just stick to arguing with my wife...

Sorry to spend so much time off-topic...
