Sure...but literally all manufacturers do that. It's a business...A screw through one wiring harness is an anomaly and hard to diagnose when the short is intermittent. The repair was trial and error.
I'm talking about a known issue that a manufacturer stands behind versus sweeping it under the carpet and forcing the consumer to pay for the repair when they know that they have a faulty part or component that should be recalled like the EGR cooler. FCA only recalled this item after hundreds of vehicle fires. They knew it was faulty and forced consumers to pay for out of warranty repairs. Let's not forget that there were multiple forum users and no doubt many others that were experiencing coolant loss only to be told that their system was topped up but no leaks present. WHY? Because FCA didnt want to foot the bill for repairs under warranty.
I do agree that your distinction is probably different than my analogy though - fair point.
