    First Kathleen Sebelius, then Lois Lerner and now this. Men have always had uneasy feelings regarding women and now we're beginning to see why.

    Here's a pic so everyone knows what we're talking about. The new CEO is also an electrical engineer, not bad. A hell of a way to begin one's time as CEO, maybe she's the right person though. We'll see.
    A lot will depend on how honest she is with everyone. She will personally be forgiven because, as you say, she is new. But if she falls back on the 'I don't know' argument then she will not do well. I think the public is tired of this sort of 'testimony' that really says nothing. 'Were working to fix it so it doesn't happen again', and 'At this point, what difference does it make'.

    The government itself is setting bad precedents for this sort of behavior.

    This is not going to end well.

    The Corvair, 1961 to 1969 was only deemed an unsafe vehicle 3 years after production stopped. (Ralph Nader)

    Automaker recalls are usually slow, sometimes unusually and painfully slow. Toyota recently paid $1.2 Billion for a settlement after the Government became involved.

    Sometimes, people will die in crashes before eyebrows are raised, and our government and automakers sit up and take notice.

    Somebody please explain to me how having a heavy key ring can lock up the steering wheel.

    The key would have had to be turned back to the off position for the steering wheel to lock, or are these switched computer controlled?
