Watched ABC this morning.  They had a piece on about Chrysler
minivans.  An actual owner who was leaning down to inspect
the puddle of gas that had collected under it was interviewed.
The van/gas chose that moment to ignite.  He ended up twenty
feet away on fire.

Chrysler has drug their feet since fall 2000.  They're just now going
to issue a recall "in a matter of weeks".  This with only 25 known
fires and 135 known cases of leaks.  Those are pretty darn small
numbers, but this is a very serious scenario.

All this with a line of minivans of which there seems to be
millions on the road and the main purpose of which is to
carry multiple people, usually children (arguably), which in
effect subjects two to three times as many people to this danger.

I wonder if we could get some similar exposure?  Anyone know
anybody at ABC?  Their bleeding hearts would likely gush at
another story of vehicle fires.

But if Chrysler can avoid the radar for so long, do we have any
chance of ever seeing any pressure exerted on Audi?
