Is it in the automakers best interest to build poor quality cars?
- 1 decade agoFavorite Answer
No it's not.
The problem is that all automakers have found ways to reduce production cost so they have all gone to "modules" and other things.
What this means is instead of replacing just a part like before, you have to replace an assembly.
The other problem is the government has mandated so much that EVERYTHING is computer controlled so that even your headlights,power seats or transmission may not work if there is a computer problem.

Obviously not, since that's how they got where they are now. Maybe not poor quality anymore, but surely mediocre quality (okay, Chrysler is still poor quality).
