Well, I wrote a long, detailed reply, but somehow lost it. Here's the short version...
They're not common at all. Lexus and Toyota totally rule here.
Regarding maintenance, my mechanic used to be the head mechanic at the Jeep dealer and has since gone independent. I trust him completely. I can't do much work myself since I live in a condo, don't have many tools and it's not very easy to get parts.
Getting around, well, can be interesting. The parking spaces are a bit tight and some of the 'streets' are literally impassable. Generally, though, there are few problems.
Hope that answers your questions.
