Can I say there were no complaints? No, but there doesn't seem to be the same level of whinging and whining in the European press about this vs here on the North American Continent.
Would you say there is about 3 times as much whining by the US?
The US out sells most other countries (except China) by about 3 to 1. More cars sold in the US = more complaints.
