3,000,000 Cars and Trucks Recalled

According to Quality Magazine, recalls affect Honda, Ford and Chrysler:

  • Honda 1,500,000 Accord transmissions
  • Ford: 1,200,000 F-150 trucks with potentially corroded fuel tank straps
  • Chrysler: 300,000 minivans that might “accidentally” deploy the airbags.

Considering that it will probably cost at least $100 up to several thousand for a transmission, the total cost to repair could be $300 million or more.

Can you afford the luxury of even the tiniest flaw in your product or service? Not really.
