The recalls are brilliant. Many of these items have no major impact on the automotive safety or vehicle performance in any major way but the decision to recall is a good one and it ensures the long term consumer confidence in the brand. To the settlement question, for sure there will be some and probably even some of the fraudulent claims will be settled but then it goes away and the market place continues to rally behind all US automotive products and GM is the biggest and the strongest. I like F as well. Buy at the bottom and sell at the top. This is how you make money. Rookies short after all the bad news is out. Nice and thanks . You will have to cover at a higher price. you are warned.
