Greetings SAAB enthusiasts,

I am in a bit of a conundrum, and I was hoping I could get some input from the community.
Right now, I'm running a 2018 Audi A6 2.0 T Quattro. I'm piling miles on it annually, and I'm considering trading it for a 2019 Buick Regal TourX (Opel Insignia Sport Tourer Estate). Long story short, I'm piling about 30k miles annually on the car, and I'm worried about reliability out of warranty.

I current have an overnight loaner of the Buick (Opel) outside my front door. I like the wagon, but I've never thought I'd own a GM product. My Audi currently has 30k miles on it, as I come into the new year. Once 2020 hits, I'll take a depreciation knock.
I like the Opel, obviously, it doesn't have the fit and finish of my Audi, but it's a nice car for sure. Some concerns come to mind involving long-term integrity and reliability. The Buick folks swear the 2.0 GM turbo is solid, and I think we can all agree Aisin makes a solid transmission. The Audi has a ZF 8HP, and I question the reliability of those. FYI I'm getting the Buick brand new for -12 MSRP.

Any thoughts?
