Thanks for the cool post... most auto makers simply skirt the issue
insisting "nothing is wrong, just coincidence".  Of course, 750,000 Pintos
and 850,000 full size Chevy trucks are just coincidence too <G>.

Seriously though, its good to see a responsible manufacturer, accepting and
holding themselves accountable for their mistakes, even it their motivation
is entirely selfish :)
