There is a solid, short article in the newest Cigar Aficionado which sheds some light on the changes that have been made. The quality of the cars as they age should become truly outstanding, as the management seems to have gone with the "back to the drawing board" approach wherever possible, as opposed to simply using tighter QC measures as the cars roll off the line.

WSJ June 13, 2004 article titled "New-Car Quality Ranking Gives Less Help to Buyers" by Joseph B. White

Basically he stated : "Now, most of the major auto makers have made so much progress that the Power Initial Quality Survey has less to offer the consumer. ... In the meantime, the bigger issue for consumers has become long-term durability. And guess what J.D. Power has a survey for that, due in August."

Let see how Mercedes-Benz scores on that one! Wonder how many years back it will it include for the models?
