Some a*****e critic just didn't like the Pinto and the bashing started, there ain't a "perfect" vehicle out there that "pleases everyone"..

Plenty of wrongheaded ideas on both sides, like most major legal issues.

Read if you can find but be ready for lots of stats and BS from both sides......... ..standard fare at business ethics courses now.

I've got the book somewhere and read it all........... .liars aplenty to go around........ .........
