Assuming it's Mexico, management, workers revolting against whatever, poor quality parts, design flaw, or other factors not being mentioned... All deregulation does is make the potential for fraud easier. It doesn't mean it will or won't happen, though.

Mine still makes the harmless noise, but 3500 miles in there's no slippage or anything scary. Yet.
