The largest recalls in history

Interesting to see the major uh-ohs manufacturers have faced over the years.

I didn't read the article (netbook, too small) but did the Ford unintended acceleration make it ? They sold the Explorer here and a few people had that issue but no recall. Instead they stopped selling them and choked spares supplies up so that residuals tumbled to zero making any repairs uneconomic.

Lawyers perhaps ?

Hmm, doesn't look like it. They did have two 4.5 million vehicle recalls for cruise control buttons catching on fire though in 05 and again in 09 .

...I bet the car industry mogols really start to "cringe" whenever such graphics get floated around the internet.
