  1. And again Opel and again rust problems
    And again security parts, the rust. 13 years ago in 2009 was a 5 … And again security parts, the rust. 13 years ago in 2009, a large article was already in the Auto Bild, which has already rusted through the load -bearing parts such as supporters and cross carriers in a 5 -year Opel Astra, and the car no longer came through the TuV. And after 5 years. 40 years ago, Opel was the number 2 of the most driven cars right behind VW. In the meantime, the Renault in the approval statistics has even been overtaken, and even Fiat does not have such safety -related rust problems. Opel had even exported cars to the USA in the 1970 years, but because of poor quality, the export was banned. Here in Germany, too, you can hardly see Opels driving. I wonder why?

  2. I hardly believe the reason
    Anyone who works in the industry knows the quality tests accompanying the series. There are salt spray tests etc. And the defect mentioned would have noticed the supplier. Or it is a supplier company from Asia, in which all of this was saved and that no longer works according to automotive Q guidelines. That would be the receipt for the most economical group buyer who deserves his incentive ..

  3. There you have yourself
    When choosing the supplier of the tie rods, apparently for a low -cost provider, the one also does not make any correct quality control. The main thing is that the bonuses of the board members remain high …

  4. Aha!
    That is interesting – I only thought Tesla has such extreme quality problems. But now that’s more than 500,000 cars. No problem GM does that. Funny only that in the USA and Canada it started to start a call back last year.
