Auto World Quality Control

Came across some newer Auto Worlds at Walmart today. Was quite disappointed when I came across this one. For paying over $6 a vehicle, this type of quality should not happen. Especially when they only make 2500 of each model. I know I for one would be quite upset if I ended up buying this one, then to go home to open it up and see how messed up it is. Especially if it was on the other side of the car that you could not see through the packaging.

Just something I wanted to share with everyone. Let me know what your opinions are on this

I agree, that's really bad. Somebody on the quality control section must have been texting.

That one's bad, but over the years Auto World has had a fantastic QC reputation. I don't think one model slipping through should change that. It's rare that I find a defect on one of their cars on the pegs.

Support your local demo derby.

I've had pretty decent luck with AW and quality. If you do in fact buy a model and have issues we do have links to AW.

That's good to know that Auto World has customer service in case I come across another one I accidentally purchased. Thanks for sharing the link!
