  1. At least the company is responsible enough to admit the problem and do something about it.

    1. There does always seem one after another. Good thing this company spotted trouble before any customer complaints and took responsibility.

  4. Always keep an eye/ear open for recalls. Once, in the case of an automobile, I was driving down a 60mph road when the engine just flat out stopped in a location between visibility hills! By the way, "effected" should read "affected."
