Thanks, Darin!

I sense some strange feeding frenzy kind of thinking when it comes to comments on companies that suffer a quality setback, and those companies who in good faith recall and repair stuff get hit badly in the process. I just wanted to clarify that Tatas are no fly-by-night guys, they are just trying too hard.

I have the same feelings for the Toyota criticism I hear. Some of it may be legit, but to demonize these very companies that raised the standards of automobile safety to such great heights today seems very unfair to me.

By now you must have figured I am the sucker who always roots for the underdog!
