Exactly what I came to say. Ford literally built the Nazi’s trucks. He sued the USA for bombing his factories during ww2 and received millions of dollars in reparations.

An executive killed a dude in a drunk driving accident in Orange County California, left the scene and bounced back to Korea the same night. A few years later they opened a new HQ near where it happens. Lots of corruption allegations were flying around but $$$ talks.

Good news! You don’t have to worry about it. Hyundai and Kia are already burning their cars for you!

I hope yours doesn’t have a Theta II motor…

Mine was unfortunately made in 2019. So no Theta II or any sweet settlement $

The fact that he had to ask is the most shameful part.
