Being an engineer means little to me. Just means most went to college for it. Never guarantees anything. Being German means even less. I'd rather have Japanese quality than pretty much anything to ever come out of Germany.
People seem to think Germans have it all figured out. Yeah that worked out well for the Mayans too didn't it?
Well let's see, I 'm not a big fan of the Germans, I worked for them for six LOOOONG years, designed and implemented production processes as well as constructed their suv's, they've got something figured out though they can't make enough of their cars, every suv that came off the line was already sold, we put 700 suv's a day out the door with less than a 5% return rate, last I read they were up to 800 a day now. JAPANESE and QUALITY should never be put in the same sentence, especially with automobiles. If people really knew how cars were built they wouldn't pay what they charge for them.
