    Loved the statement: “At the least, it's an opportunity to talk to the customer,” notes Underriner. “And depending on the make and model, there could be an opportunity to sell the customer on a new car.”

    Good find man .those stats are off the charts considering these people have to keep us safe in the vehichles we purchase from them. Or do they finness us with big words and terms to sell a product and then finness us with more terms when we complain about this POS.

    Not necessarily true, many of the year-2012 recalls included vehicles manufactured and sold in earlier years.

    Recalls do not bother me. A recall represents a problem that is fixable by the manufacturer. And since a great many of these recalls are applicable for cars that are out of warranty, it's even better. I'm more concerned with the ones no one wants to deal with, or fix.

    21 months old, not a single problem, issue, or recall.

    I went out to find myself. If I return before I get back, have me wait for me.

    I'm not apathetic, I'm just too old to matter anymore.

    I'm with you Jim. A recall is a company taking responsibility for a mistake.

    Lol, my family owns 3 vehicles on that list. They've all been very good cars.

    I believe recalls are to fix a problem before it happens to *most* people, and it is nice to see manufacturers still taking care of older vehicles.

    In many/most cases, it's also a requirement by law.

    It's great that the repair is free and all but one thing that's potentially bothersome about them is that some recalls involve a lot of work and potential for the dealer to screw things up.

    My former Z was subject to the recall mentioned at http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/acms/cs...55&docType=RCL. Unfortunately, the pics are terrible in the remedy instructions attached there (I've seen better ones) but it sure looked a like a TON of work just to replace a bunch of fuel hoses that could leak (and have leaked for a few people).

    Some folks on my350z.com were reluctant to get the work done due to how involved the procedure was. Some of those skeptics did end up having a fuel leak.

    It is true that when a defect is discovered, it supposed to be reported within 5 days to the NHTSA and recalled.

    But that didn't stop Toyota from trying to hide their faulty gas pedal setup to avoid a recall.
