  1. Steve Plunk says:

    Notice how the sudden acceleration problems have fallen off the radar? That’s because they have still yet to be proven as a real problem. Mass hysteria just like when the Audi’s had the problem. Well, maybe that mass hysteria was helped along by the owners of GM.

  2. While it does seem that there was a real problem, I do think that it was overblown. Let’s put it this way: it is still quite likely that my next automobile purchase will be Toyota.
