In my experience, German cars in general are notorious for poor electrical
systems.  My last VW (a 2000 GTI) had burned out tail lights, burned out rear
window spray nozzle, burned out cruise control switch, and burned out window
regulators.  The tail lights and window regulators burned out more than once.

My friend's Audi 4000CS Quattro (1985 I think) had lots of burned out tail
lights and the dashboard caught on fire while we were on a roadtrip once.

My mom's BMW 325Ci has had various minor electrical problems.

I never had any problem with a 1983 Toyota Cressida, a 1988 Acura Integra, or
a 1989 Toyota Camry.
