Lightbulb Poll: Start a new category for complaints

All the people that want to complain about having a crappy car have that right (I guess), but they should not dump it into this tech help section. It doesn't belong here. I guess the new category can be for raves too, along with complaints. Maybe it can be the "OWNER OPINIONS" category? I just saw a bunch of people suggest this idea in a recent thread, so I thought I'd make the proposition. Anyone agree with me?

I think if people want to complain, they can do it in the open discussion forum. If so many people hate their cars so much that it necessitates a new forum, then these people should either sell their cars or find another website.

No.

There's a crybaby website for that. It seems most marques have one these days. It's part of the game, there's lemons out there and sure as *****, every auto maker produces a dog.

I agree. There should also be another category for those who complain about the complainers.

I can understand the difficulties in creating a whole new section, but putting all the complaints in the open discussion sounds like a good compromise. And that way people will be more likely to see the thread and give their input. If that is what can be done, I'll take it. It will make my searches through the tech help section a lot faster and easier!

I vote for "Open Discussion," also. It seems to me that "Tech Help" should be reserved for comments on the operation of cars.

It amazes me why people who hate their cars keep them and then complain. If people don't like their cars, they should sell them, give them away or drive them off of cliffs.

This thread probably belongs in open discussion too.

What to do with the threads where someone needs tech help but is ticked off that their $$$ Benz isn't working so they throw in a complaint or two?

All I can say is buy a Toyota Corolla, I'm sure they are as much fun to drive and are more reliable. I bet their automatic door closers will work too. A corolla will have a nice navigation system. I'm sure it will also have about 8 airbags. Point is, Mercedes have more to break. Just buy a Corolla and give me your Benz, seriously.
