第247話 ブランドNew(2)

 前回の話の続きになるが、日本の商品の信頼性の高さは、最終のアセンブリメーカーの技術力も然ることながら、ひとうひとつの部品の完成度の高さが下支えしている。

 以前私がフィリピンで使っていた、フィリピン製のギャラン(7年物の中古を買った)は始めのうちは良かったが、やがてトラブルが目立ち始めた。オータネットが突然機能しなくなったときも慌てたが、ある時期から異常にエンジン音が高くなるようになってきた。知り合いの修理工場のオーナーに見てもらったら、音だけでなくボンネットも熱いと言う。後日クルマは引取ることにして、取り敢えず彼に任せた。

  数日後彼の作業場に行ってみると、すでにメンテナンスは終わっていた。スイッチを入れると、確かに音は格段に静かだ。

「ラジエターが錆びていたから、取り替えておいたよ。」と彼は胸を張って言った。ボンネットを開けると、確かに真新しいラジエターに付け替わっている。

「友達だから、特別価格だよ。」といって見せた彼のメモには書かれていた数字はPHP2,450。新品のラジエターに工賃、確かに安いが、そんなものなのかなあ。

 数日後、アルタビスタに向かう急坂を登り、クラブハウスの駐車場にクルマを止めたときのこと。ボンネットからかすかに白い煙が上がっている。シューという音も聞こえてくる。慌ててフードを開けるともの凄い熱い水蒸気だ。よく見ると1箇所にピンホールらしきものがあって、そこから噴出している。おいおい、新品じゃないのか~。

 帰りがけに彼に電話して、再び修理工場に持ち込むと、彼はさかんに「新品なのに信じられない。」といって首を竦めていたが、どうなのかな。恐らく交換したラジエターは中古品でリペイントしたものじゃないか。まあ、修理工場に持ち込むと、良いパーツは抜き取られて中古品と取り替えられてしまう、ということも聞いていたから、それが無かっただけでも良心的だったということになるのかな。

フィリピンで車を修理に出す場合、見張っていないと何をされるか分かりませんね!
部品の交換も、訳がわからないです。
日本人経営の、安い所があれば、流行るかも知れませんね!!

マニラではそんな方が居られる、と何かで読んだ記憶があります。それでも使用人の管理は大変でしょうね。部品や工具を持ち出されたり。

Virtually all of what you point out happens to be supprisingly appropriate and it makes me wonder the reason why I hadn't looked at this with this light previously. This article really did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless at this time there is actually just one point I am not really too cozy with so whilst I try to reconcile that with the actual core idea of your point, allow me observe what all the rest of your readers have to say.Very well done.
