Uh-Oh Union Made Product Has Problems-Must Be Koch Brothers

Tagged:  

DETROIT -- The Center for Auto Safety is demanding the U.S. government recalls more than two million Jeep Grand Cherokees.

The center said model years 1993-2004 have defective fuel tanks that can rupture.

The center said 55 people have died in crashes in which the Grand Cherokee's fuel tank caught fire.

Chrysler is disputing the center's test results and said the vehicle exceeds federal standards.

No big problem! This is Fiat's disaster! We didn't have this problem until before those evil foreigners turned Jeep into a European car. Won't catch me in one of those cars. You know all that money is now going overseas!

Mr. Apathy

People could start using that phrase like they do with "in bed" when reading the fortune from a fortune cookie.

Let's give it try with a few headlines from around the web...

  • Former MTBA Inspectors Union Treasurer Accused of Embezzling $256,000...must be the Koch brothers.
  • Carpenters Union Trustee Gets Prison For Perjury: Lied About Genovese Crime Family Ties...must be the Koch brothers.
  • Chicago rapper calls Obama 'biggest terrorist' in USA...must be the Koch brothers.
  • Food stamps for lobsters, porterhouse steaks...must be the Koch brothers.

I like it!

LMHA will raze, rebuild public housing units because of Koch Brothers

" 55 people have died in crashes in which the Grand Cherokee's fuel tank caught fire."

Yikes...that record is WORSE than the Pinto.

Old News Fred. The German occupier fixed that problem back in 2004. Fred looks like you need another Chrysler 200 sponsor to shut your loud lying mouth! Why don't that traitor KIA dealer give you one of those unamerican made skateboards to ride around in for a week?

"to shut your loud lying mouth!" Uh oh. Paul the liar is now calling other people names. He may want to tread lightly or else face another possible lawsuit.

Just the Facts:

* 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 2011 Kia Sorento, 2010 Chevrolet Equinox/GMC Terrain and 2010 Toyota Highlander and Venza all earned the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.

WASHINGTON — The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox/GMC Terrain and 2010 Toyota Highlander and Venza, 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2011 Kia Sorento, all earned the Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The safety organization said it found automakers are "making progress in rollover protection."

In this first rollover testing of the category, the agency found five other midsize SUVs "Marginal." Those, all 2010 models, were the Honda Accord Crosstour and Pilot, Mazda CX-7, Mitsubishi Endeavor and Nissan Murano. The final vehicle tested, the 2010 Ford Edge, got an "Acceptable" rating.

The IIHS tested the midsize SUVs for roof strength in a rollover crash by measuring roof strength-to-weight ratio, awarding the "Good" rating only to those that have roofs more than twice as strong as the federal minimum requirement. The IIHS notes that nearly 10,000 people die each year in rollover crashes.

The Top Safety Pick designation was awarded to the SUVs on the basis of "Good" ratings for roof strength as well as front- and side-impact testing, head restraint design for rear crash protection and the presence of electronic stability control. The Jeep Liberty/Dodge Nitro got the best roof-strength rating but came in as "Marginal" for side impact and "Acceptable" for rear crash protection, so it fell short of Top Safety Pick territory.

I left a parking lot today and saw one of those Fiats parked in it. That car is a skateboard, and don't tell me I need to see an optometrist. It looks like it can barely hold a bag or two of groceries...it's that small!

As usual Paul Wohlfarth displays his ignorance for all to see with his cut and paste post. First of all the story I posted on the recall is dated June 8, 2011 so it's doubtful any problems have been fixed by "the German occupier".
In his cut and paste from the IIHS "the traitor KIA dealer" who sells "unamerican skateboards" scored as welll as the Chevy and Jeep products. In fact upon closer inspection you will see that of the 6 SUV's mentioned 3 are foreign made. Even closer inspection reveals the Paul Wohlfarth ignored fact that the Jeep Liberty/Dodge Nitro came is as marginal for side impact which according to the IIHS- "Side crashes account for about a quarter of passenger vehicle occupant deaths in the United States". So although the roof may be strong on the Jeep Liberty/Dodge Nitro which Paul's friends build, you wouldn't want to get t-boned.
Other than those few corrections, nice cut and paste Paul.

"Chrysler disputes the Center for Auto Safety's test results, telling ABC News that the Cherokee met and exceeded government standards in regard to collision safety, and that the Center for Auto Safety's tests were three times that of industry sandards.

In a statement, it added: '... rear impacts resulting in a fire are extremely rare ...[and] occur no more often in 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles than in peer vehicles.'

It said it had changed the design in 2005 to put the fuel tank ahead of the rear axle, but added that this was done to expand interior space and space and was not to do with safety."

LMAO.....sure sure...it had nothing to do with it....

A fairytale only a libtard could believe....

I'm trying to figure out who the unamericans are that Paul Wohlfarth refers to in his latest post. It can't be ABC news which is an American news outlet, and it can't be the Center For Auto Safety which is also American. Instead he uses the Daily Mail article which is a reprint of the original story and tries to claim the story is unamerican. What a buffoon.
