As an ex owner of a 2010's Volkswagen product with timing chain problems, it's a pet peeve of mine. :p

Only recently i learned that Nissan has huge issues with the 1.2 DIG-T which is the volume engine in the Qashqai, their money maker in Europe. Some engines have crapped out at 50k km and Nissan won't honor any kind of warranty or goodwill if you can't show a dealer service history.

So we're narrowing it down then? non-20d BMW's, perhaps a Mercedes C-class?
