@TT Unwarranted? So, after having the experience that I had, I am supposed to go back many times for statistical proof? How funny. That is not how people do. Nor should they. Anyone who has an experience that bad with a make of car is more than justified if he decides never to own another vehicle of that make. I am actually surprised that any rational person would make such a suggestion. Anyone who had an experience like I did, and who ever bought another Chrysler product, needs to be caged for the protection of the community.
Fairness is not a purchasing issue. To even suggest it is, is hilarious. In fact, this is well known marketing reality, and the intelligent car makers well know it. That is why Toyota/Honda have such good reputations. I have never heard of Toyota or Honda cars which require repairs every time you pull into a town, and I am sure you haven’t either.
I owned other Chrysler cars in the past. That was in an era when it was considered a miracle for a motor to run 100,000 miles if you changed the oil very 1,000 miles. And, Chrysler stuff was like the Big 3, work on them all the time after a few tens of thousands of miles. In comparison to makes available today, they were best described as junk.
By 1989, the Japanese vehicles were easily running 100’s of thousands of miles on a motor. Chrysler was still back there, work on them all the time.
And, yes, if someone gets a Honda which needs a mechanic at only 150,000 miles every time it stops for the night, that owner should never buy another Honda. How many examples of this can you give? I wait with bated breath.
