Isn't Mazda a Japanese company?

And still waiting to see a recall for a the FPDM on the 2007 f150 I had.

Ahh the who is worst with the recall game because it cannot be who I like...

Well for me I go with the big all time stories... Its gotta have LOTS of unit, it had to go on for years, the company had to know about it and chose to fight it, ignore it, delay it, and usually ultimately gets ordered to do it by the gov, the repair is sometimes botched and there is death, injury and damage for it to really rate.

So off the top of my head a few meet this and the farther you go back the more you find. Corvair probably being the first really good modern esque one to meet these criteria. Pinto was infamous and of note and probably the biggest one of all until the GM ignition coil fiasco. Both displayed a level of disregard for customer safety that was highly disturbing. GMs ignition thing had more units when on for a longer time and had botched repairs all beating the pinto. GM had about 113 deaths and several hundred lawsuits the Pinto had 117 lawsuits but im unsure of the death toll... so GM takes it for the worst overall recall of all time as far as im concerned with the Ford Pinto being 2nd.

Chrysler, Diamler, Cerebus, Fiat, Whoever they are this week is really only famous here for in recall land for having to be ordered into the largest truck buy back of all time so far. That's a pretty big deal and eclipses the Ford cruise control fires or the brake issue.

VW's diesel gate will probably be the most expensive and largest buy back of all time but thankfully is at least not safety/injury related.

Jeep has had lots of recalls too... right now going through the Fiat shifter fun that has proven fatal.

Lots and lots and lots of recalls but honestly only a few have actually displayed corporate negligence that could be called criminal and all the Big 3 minus 1 have done it. Although at this point only 1 has had to go before congress and have their CEO say "I don't know" enough to get a skit on SNL.

Wow you have a seriously twisted perception of the world clint.

Of course you'd ignore the thousands of deaths and injuries caused by Fords decade of defective transmissions back in the 80's, despite it being posted in the comments here on several occasions, complete with links to evidence proving Ford deliberately covered it up and management had run the numbers on how much it would cost to pay the lawsuits vs fix the part.

I recently purchased a Dodge Ram Pro-master which has less than 4000 miles. The accelerator stuck and caused a major crash.

Has anyone else had this problem.

I failed to mention that it is a 2017 model
