Cars aren't designed so they'll break later on so the dealers will have something to do in their service department. Their goal is to create a very reliable vehicle so people will have a good experience with it and want to buy another one of the same brand later on. Nobody wins by building cars to consistenly break down.
That's not necessarily true. There is the principle of "planned obselescence." If you ask a conspiracy theorist, he'll tell you that's why DeLorean got framed on drummed up cocaine charges and run out of Detroit. Because he was making his cars out of stainless steel so they'd never rust out, and customers would never want to buy another car because DMC cars would last forever. Yeah :glol: :smash: we all know how reliable DeLoreans turned out to be!

What a crock!
