    This is the result of 40 years of corner cutting, planned obsolescence, half-assed engineering practices and letting the investors and bean counters run the ship… no surprise to me at all. Hopefully they’ve finally learned their lesson and realize the competition will only get tougher.


    …..on the ‘bright’ side….. at least you won’t see what you’re going to crash into if the ignition switch fails while driving at night!
