I see now is a fashion car recall problems. Ferari And she did see something. I think that is a kind of negative publicity. Otherwise I do not explain this.

A navigation system can overhead and lead to a fire? wow, and I thought we had to worry about mainly things like brakes and floormats getting caught with the gas pedal but navigation system now too? That's not good...
