I wonder how much correction they can do after the fact...
That sucks. I'm just not sure how much they care about improving build quality. It's been a thing for years now, and they're much more mature (and very well funded) company. The market has rewarded them despite this, so I'm not hopeful that they have a real motivation to improve.

Agree. And theyíve set even higher production goals for themselves going forward. That doesnít bode well for better assembly results.
