Don't you hold a bit of responsibility there yourself? I'm really not saying that one shouldn't want reliability out of their vehicle, but...if you choose to be a (1) a first adopter in almost any product and (2) buy the more complicated product, together, are you not kind of stacking the odds against yourself?
Indignation? Calling the Chrysler engineers "idiots" out of frustration offended you...really? When someone insults the government, would that bother you too? And now you state that I
should take some of the responsibility for the issues I've had with my Jeep because of the mistakes Chrysler
made? Is it me or does that sound a bit insane?
Maybe you just accept mediocrity more so than I do.
In any case, I apologize for being insulting--I was responding to an insult to others in kind and should have kept it civil. I don't agree with your standpoint at all, but there isn't any reason this needs to become overly hostile.
This discussion between you and I started to go down hill as soon as you started taking my general statements towards the Chrysler corporation
personally (as if I was the only one EVER on this site to voice that opinion). To me, defending the companies mistakes by attempting to deflect the blame onto the customer is just plain ridiculous.
