Absolutely true.  It's sort of a self-fulfilling prophecy.  For example,
an acquaintence of mine has a new-ish Honda Civic, and it had its share
of little niggling problems too, broken interior bits, blown light bulbs,
noisy transmission, coolant leaks... and the car's interior rattles worse
than my 23 year old Audi 4000.  It would all cost her if she wanted to fix
them, because Honda warranty isn't nearly as good as Audi's, so she just
lives with them.  Yet she loves her Hondas, and will buy nothing but
another Honda for her next car.  Why?  Because she thinks Honda has great
quality and reliability.  Hmm.
