jeez they wouldn't even acknowledge/admit that the boards were shyte.
They did, but not using that particularly forceful word.
They accepted that the soldering of pins into the PCB for the connectors was liable to fail prematurely due to the pins not being a mechanically tight fit in the hole in the PCB. The mechanical strength of the pins fixture to the PCB relied totally on the solder. They were at the time changing to a new design in which the loom was soldered directly to the PCB and strain relief added to prevent vibration affecting the solder joints of wire into PCB.
