Safety was the issue why cars were recalled. There was a sudden loss of power steering, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. I think this is a good action because they think about their clients.

The car looks elegant and cool! I am pretty sure this one have better performance than the others.

This blog is great! Safety should be one of drivers priority and they should be aware of any incident that may happen if they're not thinking even thinking about it.
