    That's a significant penalty to absorb. It's strange how the more experience we have designing, testing, and building machinery the more trouble we seem to get ourselves into. I understand that failures are necessary to product development, but it seems that we've gone too far in trying to over-engineer where it's not necessary.
    There's no shame in keeping certain critical aspects of a vehicle, simple & reliable. I would've thought 100 + years of building steering columns & gas tanks that they'd be a no-brainer.

    You would think so! This is going to be a NIGHTMARE as people argue over how much depreciation they will be required to pay. Just amazing!
