Fire Sale

General Motors is recalling 1.5 million vehicles because of the potential for engine fires. The problem is that a small amount of oil can leak out onto the hot exhaust system, ignite, and burn up the entire car.

Obviously GM hasn't thought this true. With new car sales going down the toilet, is this really the time to institute a major recall of this nature? Clearly the knucklehead who came up with this plan needs to be fired.

After all, what better way to force people to buy a new car than to have the old one burn up?
