Yes, I came across a lot of that sentiment while doing the research. Their standpoint seems to be the same regarding other things too, like the climate control failure and window motor failure. I wouldn't single them out though; other car manufacturers have the same type of issues and policies.
But I think if the other 'questionable' stuff made the list, I guess the RTAB's should too. Especially after what I uncovered last night as a result of your post . . apparently there have been a few extreme cases where the bolt holes for the trailing arm console deform and tear apart. This is the 3 mounting bolt holes where the trailing arm attaches to the car body, that alows for toe adjustment.
Anyhow, I'll wait for a few more suggestions for changes, and I'll add it in

Well, Philly is about 1-1/2 to 2hrs from me, depending on traffic of course. But it's a straight shoot up the NJ Turnpike to exit 14c. Yea, come up if you got nuthin to do, we'll head in to Hoboken for grub and drinks
