Robots are more consistant than humans, but if no one is paying attention to what they are doing, and do not maintain them or routinely check their adjustments, they can produce awful paint jobs. GM's problem is not paint application equipment, it's quality control. They have the tools, they just tend to be sloppy with them. That's why you can find some GM cars with great jobs and others with the Earl Schieb treatment. I have a feeling that GM hates to repaint or scrap parts that are poor quality, and so sends them out and hopes no one notices. Problem is, we do.

Is it just me, or does it seem like the lower the cost the car in the GM stable the better the paint, and the more expensive the worse it gets? It seems like Cavaliers get better paint jobs than Cadillacs. The new Cadillacs seem to be a hit, but their paint jobs have a ways to go before they are "The Standard of Excellence".
