they should provide a rental, un real i know but come on... prevention is worth a pound of cure

If George Carlin were alive (He didn't die for a lack of airbags), this is probably the point where he would say, airbags are for pussies! What happened to the good ole days when you didn't wear a seat belt, had NO airbag and you never gave a shit or thought twice about it?

1 US gallon is 3.78 litres. A litre is a teeny bit over a US quart; 1.056 litres to one quart. (The UK gallons, quarts, and pints are smaller than the US ones.) You Americans need to bite the bullet and convert to metric already.

GM really needs to get their shit together. If they keep killing off American taxpayers, there will be no one to bail them out the next time their inefficient mismanaged money-bleeding operation goes tits-up.
Why, so we have no vehicles made here anymore and have to import everything? Toyota had similar issues recently with sticky gas pedals, and all index of other stuff.
