The problem is not with brand but with owners of car showrooms or whatever its called.
There are 2 famous cases in Poland with different brands but it shows how owners of car showrooms dont give a fk about the brand, just about the money.
First case - brand new mercedes S6.3 coupe. Car didnt drive like it should and owner of the showroom didnt want to repair it because it was expensive as fk to repair. So the guy who bought the car made some youtube videos with milions of views in Poland and it took him a year of posting videos to get his money back. He didnt have the car because they were doing countless tests for a year and they didnt wanted to give him his money back.
Second case - Kia Sportage. Famous Polish rapper bought new kia sportage as his "family car" and same sh!t, car was fked up, they didnt want to repair it because it was expensive, he didnt have his car because of constant "repair" that never really hapened and they also didnt want to pay his money back.
Its all about owners of big car showrooms or whatever its called. I know people in Kia and Mercedes and I know they would take care of me if needed. Obviously Mercedes is too expensive for "company cars" so Ill go with Kia but its fuckin sad that Skoda didnt give a fk about me and I am "business partner" so I cant imagine how they handle normal people.
The truth is, "post covid cars" are really bad. Because of production of different parts changed place from China to Czech or whatever, then the war and more factories were closed etc, car manufacturers want everything cheap/fast etc, nobody cares about quality anymore. I know a guy who owns 4 big mercedes show rooms in Poland and he said that car quality from 2019 is much better than 2022. "if you're lucky, u got good car, if you're not then you're fucked" - his words
