They may use the same parts, but how the system is designed will make a big difference. If your system puts undue pressure and stress on a certain part, it will fail earlier. And with the higher performance engines this is more of an issue. So even if all the parts are quality parts, their use in the system level will have a major difference.koffey wrote: ↑Jan 24th, 2018 2:33 pmI
That's not even all of them... Like every goddamb thread about which suv/cuv I should buy turns into a massive d**k measuring contest of who can prove what manufacture is more reliable than the next or someone straight out asks the question.
Answer is, no manufacture is more reliable than the next because all their parts are from the same shit bargain bins. Your precious Honda/Toyota/Lexus/Acura/Ford/Caddy/GMC/Audi/VW/MB/Lambo/Ferrari are all hand crafted pieces of shit. No? Prove me wrong... That's why no one drives the expensive ones and all the other ones are sold to the masses sporting 'german/japanese/british/blah blah engineering'.
It's all marketing, branding and everyone buys into their crap. And for some unforeseen stupidity, everyone needs to keep asking the same question.
Awards! JD power gives awards to banks! Consumer Reports takes the highest payout!
You can put your head in the sand, but the fact remains that Japanese cars are cheaper to maintain and last longer. Just look on the streets and you'll see the evidence by the ratio of old:new cars.
