Downside
Most quality and warranty problems are caused by suppliers
To deal with unreliable suppliers, companies need to have multiple suppliers for every item
In the past, companies dealt with this through vertical integration (everything in-house)

IMHO, blaming a supplier for quality issue is only a short term solution.
Suppliers should be viewed as part of the family. As a legal manufacturer, the company will be held accountable for the finished product.
