+1 All those issues stated are engineering/sourcing decisions, has nothing to do with "inferior american workforce"...

Its possible that sourcing and engineering is done in SC for the X's and perhaps you could argue that american's don't demand the quality that their german counterparts would, but that's another issue and one that hasn't been raised in this thread.
