Toyota Build Quality is very good as they charge amount for that quality.
Look at the plastic quality in Etios and Liva, you know the reality.
Look at the paint job in these two cars which chips and comes out easily (not acceptable). I know as my neighbour has Etios D. Look at the recall of these two cars. Look at the problems in these two cars. Will you still belive thats they are from Toyota Stable, i guess NO.
This is there first vehicle in India and also belongs to first generation, so it has a lots of problem and quality issue. What is good about toyota is that they are updating the issues and may be in second generation they will be able to rectify these.
World no 1, the best quality and eliability auto company. Hod could they do this to us (Indians). I hope i have given the answer of many questions regarding
1.) Build Quality and Materia vis a vis cost
2.) Vehicle having issues vis a vis generation of the product
and upgradtion/rectification of problems vis a vis Car Company.
Therefore M&M and TATA are doing equally well, they are keeping the cost low and trying to give world class quality in that price point.
Moreover are we ready to pay premium or price to the quality, i guess answer is a BIG NO. We need best quality in least price which is not possible.
For eg: Toyota Mirror cost arount 15K without taxes whereas in our TATA, MAruti and M&M Motorised mirror cost around 5K at the max. Normal mirror cost about 3k and mirror without electri adjustments cost just 1k to 1.5k.
Change of panels, and other parts are equally costly as per thequality.
Look at the power window switches of ARIA they are at par with Merc quality, but we have paid for that. Stearing mounted switched are top notch with fine click sound and fitment.
