    Kahr has great CS, and will make it right if problems arise in my experience. I can also see someone simply purchasing something else that's from a company that makes a good gun, has a life time warranty, and good CS, but I don't regret the Kahr purchase at all. Doubt you would either, but plenty of choices exist.
    I've seen it from $820-870

    If I'm going to drop near $900 on a K40 Elite, one of the many things it SHOULD have is a lifetime-warranty.

    A fail on their part.

    Once repair is done properly and don't encounter same issue within reasonable time frame, it is unlikely to happen 5 years later (well, at least being an armorer, I haven't yet to have that issue).

    Either way, I have friends who loves Kahr products and some really hates it. Definitely not a range toy and not a target gun, but a decent ccw gun.

    The car analogy isn't very good. How often do you really depend on your car to save your life? A firearm, other than practice, will be used to save a life everytime it is used (if used properly).
    I'm not pro or con Kahr. I have enough plastic guns as it is.

    I bought a Kahr PM40 about 1 1/2 years ago and I had all sorts of problems with it. I sent it back once to get fixed and it still didn't run right. Then they sent me a new slide stop spring because it would still have fail to feed about every 2 or 3 rounds, and it still had the same problems after I installed it. I wouldn't buy another Kahr!! My brother wanted a K9 but I got him talked out of it. Also the trigger's bottom front edge would chew my trigger finger up after about 100 rounds.

    Only because I don't know of a car that has a lifetime one.

    That's one of the reasons I stopped being interested in them. They're good guns and most people likely wouldn't need them, but it baffles me how so many companies can offer such lackluster warranties.

    $900 for Kahr? No thanks, there are many other alternatives at that price and few hundred more, you have even wider selection of better firearms IMO.
