Another 8.4 Million Recalls

Luckily the City Express is a Nissan because if it was Chevrolwt engineering I couldn't run away fast enough...

Seems like all the problems are on older vehicles anyway. Most people who bought GM cars recently haven't been affected at all. It would be comical how many cars GM has recalled at this point, if it weren't for people actually dying and all.

that's horrible.
what's funny is when toyota had it's major recall all of the mainstream media was all over it, yet there's not that much media focusing on this one.

It's just overkill at this point. People are so used to hearing about GM recalls that it just isn't news anymore. Like the war in Syria. Everyday it is happening so you become a bit jaded towards it.

Usually a recall this big would take headlines, but at this point 8.4 million is just a fraction of the huge number of cars they have recalled over the past year.

You do have a point.

That issue with Toyota was a big one and not something people expected from a car maker like that which is viewed as one of the best.

Now the company who manufactures the faulty ignition switches is having their CEO testify in front of Congress.

On top of that, some of the kits that were built to fix the switches were faulty, so now there is a recall on those too.

Always something new happening with this story.

probably because the kits were manufactured from the same specs as the originals were. For all the people in these big monoliths a lot sure slips through the cracks.

I'm with stupid <-->

I think it should make people concerned that the true problem of management and culture hasn't been fixed. At least they took responsibility this time instead of sweeping it under the rug.

yeah hopefully it stays that way, it's just too bad that we will rarely know when for sure they have shoved something under the rug.
