Not sure why this wasn't a consumer recall issue, except for the fact that the defective harmonic balancers fell under a certain serial number range.

I'm not sure what constitutes a recall by definition, but I suppose if a part had been deemed defective in ALL particular vehicles it was installed in, then the recall option would be in effect.

I can only guess that the techs here are better equipped to gauge the failure rate of that part since they do the replacements.
