This is espeically obvious when a problematic part is updated with a new part number for the current model year. For example when they had a problem with the immobilizer antenna, there were 4 successive part numbers before the problem was resolved.
Agree, but not always 'as needed' at least by my definition. Some issues remain for years for some reason.
