The worst part to all of this is, these people are still bashing GM,Ford, And Dodge for making garbage vehicles! One guy said he did not care about the braking problem, he will just adjust the distance he is from another vehicle....WTF is that?
I have been buying gm's vehicles for decades and will never buy a Toyota.

Yeah..like an extra 5 feet will keep you safe when your vehicle careens out of control at full throttle, .
