No one sells Viking??
I have mentioned before my interest in Viking double ovens (particularly their new french door model). Over the past 10 months of researching Viking, Thermador and American Range, I have found that none of the top appliance dealers in my area sell Viking anymore. When I ask them why they say because the service and products were so bad they had to stop selling the line.
Does anyone know whether this is likely to be true, or if other factors probably influenced this? i.e. Viking had a quota, dealer didn't meet quota, Viking pulls line from dealer. Obviously any dealer is going to try to get you to buy what they carry.
I know Viking has gotten a bad rap, but each repair person I have talked to said they have never done any more repairs on Vikings than any other brand and that everything's kind of a crap shoot these days depending on your particular oven. If only I had a dollar for every time I've heard "they don't make things like they used to"!
