DB has been going downhill for years. Too many rubbish unreliable modern units. The newer ICE's are particularly bad. They are also in a headlong rush towards privatisation which if its anything like the UK will mean not spending as much on maintenance as they should, and I did hear a lot of "signal failure" last time I was there, though personally I wasn't affected.
The Swiss have a standby set at Basel for when the DB ICs are late and it seemed to get used every other day when i was there last summer....
Having said that the comfort levels on their long distance trains are still second to none. Id rather be on a 10m late DB IC than an on time Voyager....
