How many 2020 owners have been stranded due to a dead battery? Thousands? I've only heard of a few rare reports.Yeah, I agree. Who cares if your brand new car leaves you stranded in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery. Deal with it.
So these are not problems that you care about. Great. You asked a question about the new problems for the 2020s and I answered it. Turn it into something else if you wish.How many 2020 owners have been stranded due to a dead battery? Thousands? I've only heard of a few rare reports.
They don't want to use free roadside assistance so they can pretend they're "stranded"?
Mechanically this isnt a significant problem. Toyota still tends to build the most reliable cars for the long haul.
Even JD admits this study is primarily focused on infotainment etc not long term mechanical reliability
Kia, Dodge others have awful resale value. Ask yourself why that is.
How do you know where I live?So these are not problems that you care about. Great. You asked a question about the new problems for the 2020s and I answered it. Turn it into something else if you wish.
You live in a city so of course this is how you think. Roadside assistance is everywhere. For those of us that spend a lot of time in rural/remote areas where there is often no cell phone service, roadside assistance is not much help. Yes, people do actually get stranded.
Not trashing Dodge. Chrysler has consistent had horribly reliability and very poor resale for at least a decade.So, Toyota ranks poorly in Initial Quality and people on here trash Dodge. Makes perfect sense. I
All of it. Corporations are driven by profit. Selling products with defects is costly for corporations (own any Boeing stock?). It is cheaper for corporations to minimize defects before the products are sold compared to fixing them after the sale. Certainly with today's technology, mass production on its own is not the root cause of defects and most would agree that it has improved quality overall. Corporations grow because they have learned to efficiently mass produce their products with minimal defects. Toyota has accomplished this better than some other car companies although many see a negative trend.What part of my post do you disagree with?
In manufacturing this is actually the opposite. The more you produce, the more you can optimize the process, identify areas problems can happen and improve them, spend the money to automate the whole process with robotics, spend more on QC systems like machine vision, etc, etc.Well when you're the biggest car seller then you have to expect more problems. QC just isn't as good when you work with high volumes of parts.
