What this also tells me is that there was a time, and it probably ended when Wiedeking was well into his role as CEO, that these very quirks in design were made by people who understood the car business.
These days, they seemed to have allowed marketing to take the reigns and let the public dictate what it wants, and that's not good. And at the end of the day, it's all about the numbers, the sales figures, and trying to suck more consumers into a brand that was once for the eccentric. They just can't afford to do that anymore; unless of course they were like Ferrari who was bought out by Fiat, and still allowed to remain totally exclusive without a care in the world about it's own survival...like a trustafarian.
Times may have changed, but as long as we can still buy the cars that made this company so special, how can one complain?
