I almost taught the bottom of the barrel had been reached on GM's faulty engineered ignition switches. I'd be surprised if these switches are only the tip of the iceberg of numerous other badly designed/QC'ed parts.

not worried about quality any longer, they only concentrate on quantity and throwing it together and "here's your car"
