It's mind boggling that VW continues to grow while it languished near the bottom in quality. Imports have a disconnect with the consumer.
Yep, it's unbelievable...and their cars are beyond boring too. Must be that they are good at advertising I guess...MoparNorm said:
I'm with you. That friend of mine that owns a Jetta (ie money pit) actually wants to look at another VW along with the Dart as a replacement. Blows my mind.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Perception is extremely important. You make a really good impression early on, and people may just be willing to overlook nickle-and-dime problems later on in the vehicle's life.MoparNorm said:
Agreed. 2010 was the beginning of the change and next year should amaze all the non-allparians. It is quite appanrent that the problems this forum deals with regarding quality issues has taken a big drop on day to day postings.DaveAdmin said:Yes, it takes three years, because they are looking at three year old cars.
This is not a measure that's unduly influenced by dealer prep. The question is, once the cars are three years old, how reliable are they?
2010 was a bad year. Yes, the Ram was relaunched for 2009, and I think the Challenger as well, but morale was still low, the cost cutting of Daimler was still there in the factories, etc. They were training like mad and trying to beat it into plant managers' heads that yes, quality is king now.
The 2014 survey will be important. The 2015 survey will really tell us what's been going on.
