true. Understanding the details of what was changed is most important. I'm also certainly not saying that there can't be situations where someone gets a first model year that happens to be a gem... but there's usually some niggly little details that do get cleaned up by year 2 or 3... or in the case of the 9-5 years 5-8 :-)... ng 9-3 had a bunch of little issues also in the first 2 years...
Honda and Toyota are not necessarily perfect (as Norm is of course only too happy to point out), but as companies, they tend to be better than average at getting a car production ready and relatively bug free quickly. This may be related to their long history of very extensive automation and high production volumes. Hard to make changes in that context so there is much pressure on the engineers to get it right the first time.Posts in this Thread:
