    How do you check a failure that only appears occasionally? There were not that many rocker failures compared to the number of Rockers made. I mean the part was only about US$2.50 but could destroy an engine. Just like mentioned above with the Rolls Royce Trent engine. A small part nearly crippled an A380. Stuff happens with manufacturing parts/goods.

    Not just the A380...
    40% of the B787 world wide fleet are on the ground waiting for Trent 'fixes'...

    ^ yes, Holden is not alone in this regard as I thought was self evident.

    Stuff happens in manufacturing and it’s usually when there are process changes or some process deficiency. But when stuff happens, those manufacturers, who ever they are, should do some navel gazing to get to the root cause. If they don’t they should hold their head in shame while they suffer ISO audits. In any case, if the problem involves an aircraft manufacturer, they would suffer regulator audits as well.
