Chrysler just announced that it was recalling about 45,000 brand-new Dodge Chargers and Magnums and Chrylser 300 models because of possible brakfe fluid leaks which could lead to engine compartment fires.
My baby-boomer friends say that this never happens with Janpanese cars. With their Toyotas and other brands, they mainly have to be concerned about oil changes and other very ordinary maintenance.
Do Japanese auto-makers have as many recalls as American counterparts? My guess is that they don't.
Whose fault is the recalls? Is it our workers who are among the highest paid in the world? Or is it flaws in the manufacturing process?
Living in Michigan which is look at jumping in the economic abyss, I would like to think that my next vehicle would be American. From a maintenance point of view I might be better served with a foregin car.
