    oh noes, there is a 1 out of 13231231232 chance my gas pedal might get stuck. What would I ever do if that happens, maybe used the brake pedal & drop it in neutral?

    He's trying to save face by repeating over and over only the second part of his earlier statement, "take it to the dealer to have it looked at" and leaving out the "stop driving it". Live on CNBC right now in the hallway.

    How many cars had the problem? 3? 4?

    And they recalled 5 million cars over that?

    So a Toyota has a 1/1.5 million chance of accelerating out of control, but A Ford/GM have a 1/1 chance of being a shitbox once they have 60k+ miles on them.

    Great logic to buy a domestic. :ugh:

    the smart thing to do would have been to unfurl this grand scheme a few months ago during cash for clunkers. They fail at misleading the public though
