This has been my viewpoint, it (defects/#cars sold) must be staggeringly low. That said, I would guess there must also be a lot of non-reported incidents too. Hopefully, big corporations have statisticians/data mining to look into that sort of thing.

When I heard I heard the engineer/designer changed the device without changing the part number (part#12253-1, part#12253a, etc), I said to myself that it's very unlikely the non-changing part number was mandated from above. It sounds like someone covering his/her butt.
