We are doomed to repeat the ills of our past unless we strive to learn from them.
Recently, I posted a thread with the sole purpose of informing GMI readers about the information publicly available from the NHTSA/NASA/National Academy of Science review of Sudden Unintended Acceleration.
The topic was presented in an unbiased manner and did not reference any single vehicle manufacturer. The review site provides detailed presentations that contain an objective, scientific review of the SUA issue. It did not include political or other sectarian viewpoints.
In short, it was truly a news article that GMI could be proud of, one intended to foment rational, knowledgeable discussion.
That becomes a bit difficult though when the thread is deleted.

Similarly, if SUA is being blown out of proportion, then an impartial, technically thorough review should put the matter to rest.
