    Seems like its the fault of the subcontractor, not the companies so to speak. Same issues arose with braking system with the korean manufacturers as well.

    Subcontracting risks. Sucks for these companies. Do we want to provide more available work for people, or do we want security and QC of our own in-house manufacturing of in-car systems.

    8 out of 10 largest car recalls ever were by Ford, GM and Chrysler. Only Toyota (at 3) and Volkswagen (at 8) make it in the top 10.

    If it's your car, it could be the first one and it's still a nightmare. If it's your car and now it's the fourth, the word "nightmare" isn't sufficient. I'm going for my fourth.
