It's my general opion that the folks at GM couldn't find their butt with both hands. This is based on owning a few of there cars. The first was a Vega..need I say more? I was also a supplier for some time. Too top heavy in management and don't forget the union.
With the exception of the union thing I can say after 20 years of dealing with all major car manufactures in US, Japan, Germany, Korea and India....no difference. Prior to 17 years ago I have no idea. My first and only Corolla was the biggest POS I have ever owned. I have no brand loyalty to any company or region (currently own 1 US, 1 Japan and 1 European vehicle). Prior to that was brand loyal to Ford for most of my driving life but not exclusive to any one brand. I just do not like the way that Toyota has a recall the major reaction is, "well it happens to everyone and no doubt about it they will fix it". With other companies, " they can't do anything right, I am not surprised this happened to them".
All I can say is, when I look at the actual warranty data I have access to see it is not those companies which most would expect with the least amount of claims. But they are all bunched very closely together.
