The springs that were going to break already did long before the recall was issued. This is part of my disappointment in the corporate decision. The failure data clearly supported the already widely understood engineering principles on the subject.

Basically, whatever was going to break did so within a thousand miles or two. It was an idiotic decision from the very beginning.
