My neighbor is a mechanic, now retired. A few years ago he told me to never buy a car with direct injection. He was frustrated at seeing how short their life span was and how often they were in for repairs. He also saw it as the future because engineers and the industry didn't care about outcome. It is fuel efficient and looks good on paper, especially with ever increasing gov't regulations.
