Why do you reckon British, French and Italian cars often tend to be unreliable? watch

    I blame british mechanics, not british cars. When someone can over tighten the fan belt to the point that the shaft to the water pump snaps you know you shouldnt be a mechanic.

    But then hey, why the heck would you need a water pump when in the sahara dessert? surely its just extra weight.

    I live quite close to a sports car dealer, and I must say ferrari are probably at the dirt bottom of the reliability scale.

    These things have their batteries go flat in the showroom if they aren't driven for roughly over a week. Even the newer models like the 599GTO and 458!

    Opels aren't exactly known to be reliable
    Yup, because nowadays Opel uses exactly the same models as Vauxhall, an originally British company :rofl:. Even when German cars are unreliable, it can be tracked back to someone else.

    German cars arent always as reliable as their reputation credits. The amount of problems bmw's encounter is becoming quite phenomenal. not to mention the oil flaps on the 535d's etc. the difference is the high level of customer service that usually goes into sorting it..
