@AmpedRealtor - my theory is the big to push to grow production that happened in Q3/Q4 (I think) has thrown quality control downhill again. My 70D was purchased Q1 2016 - if you look at quality ratings they keep increasing all the way up to 2016. I've had zero problems in 20K+ miles - but clearly I'm not everybody. It seems deliveries much newer than mine are having more issues. Mine was an inventory car with a few hundred miles - maybe that helps? Perhaps they go over inventory cars a second time before the customer gets them? Also maybe it's good business - sales keep growing. That is the only metric in the long run that matters. If sales keep growing you are satisfying the market. At some point he will have to get quality under control but he does periodically point to stats saying the cars are getting more and more reliable. Even CR admits that WRT the S.
