Someone is going to argue with me on this because when cars are involved, they always do.
I don't feel that the foreign competition is better, they are better at makign themselves look better. They are better at brilliiant advertising.They
have managed to almost create a brainwashed mindset that their cars are better and there is nothing wrong with them.
I have witnessed this with my own eyes. Someone has a ford, they need to replace a computer chip. Oh that car is a piece of junk. Someone has a honda.
same chip goes up. Oh I just got to have it serviced. I love my car!
Then there are those who are not happy no matter what. Not understanding the amount of work that a car does, the abuse it takes, the thousands of
They have the car for ten thousand miles and a chip needs to be replaced and they are furious.
To me, it is absolutely amazing how they dont' fail more. Cars these days have more computer power then the first lunar lander. I think the new bmws
have over 225 computers in them.
If my PC could only work so well!
My husband is a mechanic. He is not even a mechanic, when I call him he is uploading, downloading, removing or installing chips,running diagnostics,
or figuring out where a glitch is.
When he went to school the people who didn't know computers flunked.
He is thrilled when he actually gets to tear something apart for a change.
car sales taken into the equation, the foreign companies have just as many repairs, if not more then the domestic automakers.
But these days parts are so mixed up that there are few cars that truley belong to an automaker. I really think all these makers can benefit by
collaborating instead of competing.
Just like sealy has made you think they are the only mattress, though there are dozens of better brands.when you think burgers you think McDonalds.
When you need a water bottle you think wal-mart.It is strategic and brilliant.
