    Maybe all the car companies are airing their dirty laundry now while everyone is suffering? How long have they known that their trucks were defective?

    boy o boy- remember the days when "must be japanese" stood for quality manufacturing? it now stands for great acceleration

    Everybody recalls something sooner or later. I hate that this such a bid deal now when every car I ever owned had multiple recalls and no one ever complained. You just drop your car off at the dealership and get it improved or fixed at no charge. I don't see anything wrong with that...

    fuel guage issues seem like a relatively minor one (obviously not ideal, but think in these pretty sophisticated machines, that kind of thing can be excused). this brake stuff is honestly concerning - for obvious reasons :-)

    Oh. My. God. Your vehicle might RUN OUT OF FUEL. Why, sure, that's as bad as accelerating out of control (Toyotas, supposedly) or explording in a fireball when hit in the rear (Pinto) ... etc.
    Jesus. There are worse things than running out of gas, you know.

    Looks to me like there's just a lot more disclosure rather than the number of vehicles needed to be recalled actually increasing.

    This is a very worrisome pattern recently, of automakers trying to point fingers to suppliers. They need to fess up.

    nixon's comment: both bold and funny !

    That braking issue sound serious. The fuel gauge one - a little less...

    More recalls are the way of the future. Thanks to our non-productive NHTSA.
