Given how many debilitating reliability issues Motor Trend, Car and Driver, and Consumer Reports have had with their Giulias, the specter of Italian inattention to quality, durability, and reliability is being reaffirmed rather than rebutted.

With the Ghibli and Qporte getting older by the minute, the pie-in-the sky sales projection won't come from massive sales increases of vehicles at the end of their product cycle.

The Giulia is off to a terrible sales start, so even if the Stelvio is game-changing--and it won't be--there is no way sales of these two brands are going to more than double.

Impossible to dethrone the Germans. Their (fake) image is too strong. To dethrone them one has to offer a better product in all ways for much less money. Only Tesla can do that. And Lexus did that with the first LS. I hate large (criminal) companies.
