The biggest concern about buying an appliance is getting it working properly, according to a new survey.
A new survey by the US-based Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) found that only 26% of consumers who bought appliances for the first time since the election in November said they had a good experience buying the appliances.
The survey also found that 62% of respondents said they expected the quality of their appliance to improve, but only 28% expected it to improve the most.
“The American public is very concerned about the future of the country,” said David Weisberg, president of CSPI, a non-profit group that conducts research on the science of the economy and technology.
“They want the American public to know how we are going to get better appliances and the products we buy.”CSPIs survey of 1,000 consumers was conducted online by a pollster in April.
The company also asked 1,300 consumers whether they were buying appliances that they thought would improve over time.
The majority of respondents, 58%, said that they were not worried about their appliances getting any worse.
Only 27% said they were concerned.
However, there were some notable exceptions: 39% of those who were buying new appliances said they worried about the quality, while 32% said that quality was “very important.”
Among the respondents who were purchasing new appliances, only 16% said quality was very important.
The survey found that about half of those buying new or refurbished appliances said that the quality was not as good as they expected, while 41% said it was.
A few months ago, the Center for Innovation in Consumer Products reported that American consumers had bought more than 3 billion appliances since the November elections.
The number of people who have a problem with their appliances has risen, according the CSPIs report.
The number of problems has increased by 10% since last year, the survey found.
The average consumer is now experiencing 2.5 appliances a month.
