Kitchen aide stand mixers on sale

Amazon.com has kitchen aide stand mixers on sale. My husband and i have been looking at them for a while but after I read all the reviews on there, I can't decide whether or not to get one. There are lots of glowing reviews, but the bad ones say things like they broke in a week and aren't good for anything but cake batters, etc. I thought before we splurged and got one, I'd ask on here what chowhounds thought of them. Some of the complaints I was concerned about were:

-not good for kneading bread dough (we make all our own bread and this is one of the primary things we would use it for

-not lefty friendly--I'm a southpaw and if it is going to be a pain in the butt for me to use, I'll pass

-the motors don't last on them more than 18 months

I think I decided I want at least a 5qt bowl, does anyone else have any advice on them? Also what is a good price. With a rebate, you can get the 5qt ones for $169.99 with the sale.

Thanks!
