My first question when I saw the Article was "how big of a problem is this?"  This is a multi billion dollar industry that's been around for a while.

From what I understand, Boeing tried to push the technology forward and missed their mark.  I'm surprised to see this issue in the auto industry.

Seems like we have a recurring problem here. I hope the industry gets this sorted out quickly. Do you think these types of findings could require major product recalls? That could be disastrous.

It looks like, more than anything, a more robust manufacturing method needs to be defined.
