They are fixing that now...

However, if they would have come out with a turbo engine in 2007 I don't think the media would have been forgiving like it is today in regards to turbo engines. First limp mode and everyone would be on fire. But I do think a good engine would have won over the media and customers eventually. However, back then they didn't have all the data and knowledge about how reliable a turbo engine could be.
