Unfortunately, another Hitachi product! Expect trouble.

I have purchased, online, 5 airconditioners for my home over the past 1 year. 2 Hitachis and 3 reputed Korean made ones. My Hitachi's have not stopped giving trouble while the Korean airconditioners are performing well. There does seem to be a manufacturing quality issue with Hitachi as problems keep cropping up. Unfortunately, Hitachi service is non-existent hence fixing issues takes multiple calls and escalations. Much of the time, the toll-free and other complaint numbers do not work....
