How a part that costs less than $1 can derail a six-figure automobile.

Every Master cylinder I have been around has a vent. Some have a diaphragm between the cap and the fluid but it has to be vented. They would not have gone this far without something venting. It may be that the vent may become plugged over time due to the design but if not vented, brakes would have stopped working long before the first pads wore out.

That's in the garage that is attached to the house................the other garage in the back has 12.
Ok, that’s better. For a moment I thought we may have to rescind your membership at the yacht/country/tea club.

Yeah, the only people it affects might be late for their polo game.
I mean it's not a lot of cars and the part is probably not particularly expensive; certainly the labor shouldn't be.

To me it's the fact at how simple that part is and they somehow messed it up.
That seems to still be the case in some instances. My WL had a recall to check the seat frame where a child seat is attached. It was to check if a weld got missed. Ours was fine, but I'm glad they checked it just the same. In today's world a kid has to sit in a child seat until puberty it seems.

That is such a simple thing to miss as well. Idk how long ppl put their kids in child seats anymore. I think I stopped being in them when I was like 5 lol.
