eek Japan Aces Germans

Got this little snipet from The Sun Herald November 3, 2002.

Japan Aces Germans
Quote" They may live in the land that is home to Porsche, Mercedes-Benz, Audi and BMW, but German drivers are happiest at the wheel of a Japanese car, according to market research group JD Power, which conducted a survey of 15,000 German car owners."

Don't know how accurate it is but just thought i'd post it as i thought that was somethign interesting. I would of thought that they'd be happy with there German cars.

Guess the sales would tell the real story.

the JD Power survey asks owners of cars what they think of the dealer service, the cars reliability, performance, economy, how well it does its job, any break down problems and how those are fixed.

top gear do one every year, and the last one i saw had a vauxhall dinky 4wd come last out of about 130 cars. vuaxhall performed really badly due to poor dealer service and reliability. then they got the 4wd, backed up a muck spreader and sprayed this car with shit "lets do to vauxhall what they have been doing to us"

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
