Well, on one hand, Ford and other auto manufacturers aggressively marketed SUV
's on their safety.
On the other hand, major news investigations, Consumer Reports, and hundreds of others released alert after alert that they can roll over.
The point is, why is this accident any more the fault of the manufacturer than thousands of other unfortunate crashes?
I'm not up to snuff on this next point, but I wonder how much in damages were paid out over the Corvair, Pinto, and Renault Fuego (for its sheer offensiveness to the senses).
