I would have shut down production, got a fork lift and removed the machine from the line to get fixed. That would have cost too much and that's why I would never be hired or work in those places.

When we started buying Hondas in the late 80's, Dad would specifically look for Japan made cars for that reason. We bought a couple of Accord Coupes over the years (all made in the US) and while the mechanical side they were still pretty much bulletproof, the fit and finish was definitely MUCH better on the cars from Japan.

Sad but true.
