These days DC manufacture their cars like Honda, Toyota and
other brands do, manufacture them cheap and as fast as possible.
This means taking as many short cuts as they can.
The only difference is that DC has to do it to stay competative.
The other brands have been doing this for a long time and
do it better, faster and cheaper.
Unfortunately quality suffers and it is noticed by many.
MB wants to be like RR or Bentley but have the same sales figures
Quality and mass production just don't go together.
In the end the only real thing that matters to a car maker is
how much $$$$$$s end up in their bank account.
And they will do what ever it takes to make sure that it is more
and not less.
