Tine, an early recal is not necessarily a sign of a poor product. Especially when it is a voluntary recall, which almost every car model has when they are new. If anything such a recall is a bit comforting in my book, for it shows the company's commitment to their product (and their adversity to legal liability). IMO, this is a good thing.
