unintended acceleration sources
alright everyone. I need the list's collective resources once again to
fend off my stubborn friends...My friend seems to not believe the fact
that the drivers were responsible for the unintended acceleration as he
doesnt understand how they could mistake the gas pedal for the brake
pedal. He also says that its funny that everyone went after Audi about
this and he feels that it is either true, or everyone is out to get audi.
I KNOW that the whole thing is utter bullshit, but he doesnt believe the
five different sources that i got from the internet, the government
testing agencies or anything. I need anyone who has information to tell
me, or even better would be internet pages on the phenominon. I also
need to find other instances and specific cases of this for not only Audi
but for other manufacturers as well. If i cna get them for BMW then that
would be great. Thanks in advance everyone...i really need to educate my
friends about this...
Also, i came across a couple of other things with my friend. On one of
the pages it stated that in 1995 the government called the A6 the safest
car in america based on their tests, well, since it was placed above
bimmer, my friend didnt believe them. Also i came across a JD Power and
Assoc. blurb abou tthe Audi tying for seventh for reliability with BMW,
Honda and Toyota. Well, guess what, he didnt believe them either.
Apparently JD Power isnt a good enough agency to report from.
oh well, any help that you guys can give me is much appreciated...and
also what are some web pages that will have nfo on the Quattro and iX systems???
