Re: What motivation car manufacturers ?

Would you buy the same model car if your previous vehicle had been stolen ?

Depends. If the theft was directly attributable to the manufacturer's sloppiness[1], then yes, probably. On the other hand, one may have a particular preference for exactly that type of car (because of size, economy, handling, loading capacity, ergonomy or whatever else), taking any downsides as they come.

[1] which in the EU may well get the manufacturer in a spot of trouble because of consumer protection laws.
