I own a 2005 F250 diesel, 1995 Tbird, 2000 mustang and 1999 Infiniti G20t. Of those, the infiniti has been in for service the least. Yes, fewer times than the 11,000 mile F250, and it has 150,000 miles.SVT2888 said:GM and Ford only seem to have a problem in "Perceived" quality but not actual quality.
Actually Volkswagen reliability is pretty bad. Alot of the small stuff breaks and their dealer service is terrible!Teeps said:problem is they spend more money making a less reliable product!!!
And they'll tell you a thousand times over, they could build a bullet proof product, but it would cost ten times as much.
Toyota is just more efficient, and can put the money in the right places to insure quality, especially powertrains.
Although some Toyota's in past have had really chitty steel body work. Thinner than the skin of my @#$ an instant rust bomb.
Nissan used to over engineer everything so bad they went practically bankrupt, until they were bought.
Mitsu, Subaru, both have some decent quality products, sometimes minor issues, but the big stuff is trouble free.
I'm starting to like Audi and Audi Jr (Volkswagen), I've always loved Porsche, Seems like BMW and Benz are going down-hill, but they certainly still make a few choice machines.
Hard to beat the Bang for buck of the Z06!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I've only owned German cars, and Ford's, only GM beater we ever had was really a Toyota, my wife had a Saturn with a Honda V6 powertrain(sold it), and now a Vibe with Toyota powertrain, and AWD.
As long as I don't have to devote to much time away from my projects working on her commuter, then I'm happy, other than oil changes hers has been problem free.
Did I mention I love German cars?
Actually we have some good dealers around here, but I have never owned one, and I never said they were reliable, I just like them, heh.SVT2888 said:Actually Volkswagen reliability is pretty bad. Alot of the small stuff breaks and their dealer service is terrible!
