I think it’s also a case of manufacturers trying to bury problems. If it wasn’t for forums like this, you’d probably never know there were other cars with similar issuesSomething tells me that there's a total lack of a system of co-ordination with dealers and manufacturer. You can easily imagine a situation where reports of diagnosis and fixes by one dealership could end up being buried in HQ rather than being added to a knowledge base. So you can see dealers being left to their own devices to diagnose and resolve. I'd love to be proved wrong but somehow, I very much doubt it.
