I put down a deposit on a SE5 with goal of picking it up after the 25th of April. On these discussion sites, I keep reading about recalled brake fluid filler caps, radiators etc...

I know this is a dumb question:
If an item is recalled on these sold Spyders, do the ones in the showrooms and fresh off the assembly line get turned around and get the recall fixed before sale?:)

or is it like computer programs; you get the program and then you get the updates & corrections later? :mad:

Is there anywhere there is a list of all the recalled items?:eek:

Just so you know, I'm a Manufacturing Engineer by day.....

When I visited the Spyder Plant last year I was very impressed with the facility and the manufacturing systems. They are ISO certified, use continuous improvement and visual factory techniques. Although we were not allowed to take pictures, I can tell you they had Quality charts in use at many stations.

OK, so where am I going with this? BRP has top notch Quality systems and Management appears to take the lead in this area. This means when an issue is identified, specially one found in the field, the fix will be implemented at the factory level extremely quickly, and if their ISO policy is like those of other facilities I've worked at, no Spyders will leave the factory with an item needing correction as this is the only way to guaranty it never makes it to the end customer.

If the recall was issued after shipment, the dealer should perform the recall work before delivery. From what I have seen so far, BRP does a good job on issues once identified.
