He's an engineer for a company that is a supplier to many in the automotive world. (Ford, GM, BWM, Telsa, Fiskar are their bread and butter clients)

And I personally feel that this is a combination of many different things but being lumped into a single container here.

Some are bad parts (happens), some are bad dealers screwing it up even further because they do not know their products, some are just plain major defects from the start.

And some people are just picky - this is never going to feel like an regular automatic.
