Recalls are usually generated by NTSHA for safety reasons and require the manufacture to comply. Yes there are such things a voluntary recalls. Poor performance of a product usually gets design changes based on sales or lack there of, not a recall.
Sales or marketing moves the manufacturer of any product to shrink sales price because market demands it. Best way to shrink sales price is to cut cost and cost cutting to an extreme gets poor performance of a product.
