car follower Posted: 2/26/2013 5:00pm PST I can't get too worked up about recalls like a lot of people. If the manufacturer has found a safety problem or something that might fail early and gets on top of it I applaud them. There was a time when something that wasn't right was neglected and manufacturer corrected in the next years model. As for the previous years purchaser he or she was SOL. Unless you had a good dealer's service manager that would go to bat for you when it came to warranty. And then we are all aware of the old 'fix if it fails' warranty. There again a good dealer's Service Manager would get every owners car fixed.
