|Is the repair data on these high-end appliance repairs based on actual problems that required a replacement part, or are they combined with customer usage issues and adjustments or even installation issues, (i.e. improper conversions for gas appliances). I find the later to be true for most of the upscale appliances that required a service call. Also the classification of 'unrepairable' could be because of insufficient training or lack of knowledge on a particular brand and/or model. Is there more data regarding other appliances such as dishwashers, fridges?, etc.. Furthermore I find Consumer Reports opinions to be biased and I do not take any of their information and spread it around - the major manufacturer's shell out big money for ads in these well known magazines and some of that money I am sure finds its way into some of these 'surveys'. I say it's a goddam conspiracy! Ahh - now I feel better.
