    "So you'll know if it's severe or if someone simply tapped your bumper on the way out of her parking space"

    Why is the reversing person necessarily a "her"?

    The reason is pretty innocent: I tend to make all of my pronouns feminine. (Though sometimes I slip up.) It's a byproduct of many years of grad school, where, for a variety of reasons, most of my profs preferred we do so.

    An app for your iPhone, etc., about your vehicle- what will they think of next?? Millions of vehicles are being recalled every single day for safety flaws. How is this a sign that car quality is improving, especially for the American cars?? That tells me that quality is worsening.

    Hmm. I think you may be confusing this article with the one about recalls that we ran earlier today. If not, I might need you to explain your argument.
