I think they are mad that some cars weren't exactly what they wanted, and was put on the list. Some of these cars are a little disappointing, but nowhere near the worst. Explorer is a fine SUV, and I guess Ford should apologize for not seeing a decade into the future and learn all about the oil issue before they built on of America's best SUV's. The GM EV1 was a pretty good car. It was fast and got great mileage, but GM said it was too expensive to maintain- and people were angry, because GM cared enough to take back the cars and tell them the truth. Yes GM did kill it, but did they kill the electric car? No, in fact they are bringing it back, and it's more advanced than anything on the market right now.
I have more but this is not the time or place.
