Likely very clever (I won't know unless I can figure out the reason for the addition) but also very scary.
It's scary for a couple of reasons...
1. Why was it done? And what is going to be done to document the need for this added part and to potentially fix those made prior to this 'fix'.. recalls? Advisory bulletins?
2. What other parts/systems are innovated on the fly that might cause safety concerns.
Absolutely agree. Just to be clear, I'm saying it was a clever solution to a problem. Not the correct, right, safe, sane, acceptable solution.Clever solution if you are buying a Yugo; or a product from Ikea.
