Bob Lutz uses his blog this week to answer the "quality" question. There is currently a huge gap in car buyer's minds between "perceived" quality and actual quality and Lutz has been known to beat up the automotive press. A year or so ago he even threatened to pull GM ad dollars from magazines that "unfairly" treat GM vehicles. At this point in time, the quality gap between all but the bottom-feeder automakers is pretty negligible. His best advice is to go into each car with an open mind. Hey, I've been guilty of harsh judgment on the other side of the equation, but I now look to all new cars with a clear mind and thoughts. I've put myself in a state of Zen… Hummmmmmm.
