Question Maintenance: Legacy vs other makes/models or cars?

I have been working on my girlfriend's Saturn this past week due to transmission problems and there have been a number of times that I just cringe at the engineering. This thing is a bear to get to any normal maintenance items. I have heard that in general, domestic vehicles are harder to work on than imports (except German vehicles, maybe [puts on flame retardent suit])

GM has hidden bolts in weird places that, to me, seem totally unnecessary! To gain access to certain items, you have to remove completely unrelated/unattached components just because of their locations.

I have taken apart just about every part of my BD Legacy and it just seems so simple and easy to work on. It makes sense where things are, and how you get to 'difficult' items.

What are everyone's opinions on engineering and maintenance when it comes to different brands and models of vehicles? Am I just biased because I've done so much with the Legacy?

Thanks!
Aaron
