Just bought this vehicle-had 10 hour drive to get it (handicap van) now fixing all the electrical issues. I have always loved the German engineering but the asian cars have QC! I am old school, don't think you should have to pay $300 for a key or $300 for an igniter that replaced a $3 set of points - that's "progress?" I guess I know too much about engineering, mechanics, electronics, etc. It must be easy to design products without regard to cost to the client!
"German engineering" is what I used to crave, but it may be a thing of the past.
Don't follow - lead, as you once did; produce a car for the people! Reliability-don't need all the security and courtesy circuits that fail in a few years-give us the basics, solid engineering.
