“The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one” freep.com/in-depth/money/cars/ 🚗

not surprised. They dared to put a price on a life when Pintos were catching on fire because they were too cheap to spend another $5/car.

This is why I won't buy their products.

(not that other automakers are any better about these things, on the whole...)

@yakkoj I’ve had a negative experience with them as well and vowed never to purchase another one of their vehicles, amazing more folks haven’t caught on
