yea, well my Focus has never been back to the dealer for a problem yet, but our '12 MBZ GLK 350 has been back three times.

So I guess the Germans cannot build a decent car either? And we traded a Toyota in on the Benz because of the failing transmission at 39k miles on it (and the base Toyota 3 yr/36k warranty was over).

Every company has build issues.

Yes, they do. However after owning brand new vehicles from all of the American manufacturers and 3 from different foreign auto makers, my experience is that American manufacturers do not build vehicles to last. I mean...that would cut into profit.
