You can't say this with any kind of certainty. You don't know what went through peoples minds when decided to buy one car over another. You also don't know what their motivations are or what is important to them. Many people are not "brand loyal" and are not automotive enthusiasts like some of us here. If they get an overall bad impression of a car, or if it gets a bad review in a magazine (and those mag writers WILL notice those things missing), then they won't buy that car.

Your statement is nothing but an opinion.
