A long time ago, a friend of my grandpa had an Alfa Romeo Alfetta. One day, the car was about one year old, he forgot to put the handbrake on when he parked it. The car then rolled down the slope to a underground car park, hit the wall with about 10 km/h - and burst into flames. Why? As we all know, the Italians invented electricity. And in the Alfetta, the battery sits just a few inches behind the front bumper. The negative pole was balanced with the body of the car, so basically, the entire car was loaded negatively. The plus pole however was just a few inches away from the front crash bar. Due to the impact, the plus pole touched the negatively loaded crash bar, causing a short circuit and then a fire. The car was completely destroyed.

About 15-ish years ago now, I saw an Alfa Romeo (couldn't tell what model it was, but it was pretty famous at the time and definitely not very old) that exploded in a parking lot and it left a pretty big hole right where the car was parked for a couple of weeks before they filled it up again. Plus either a baby, its grandpa or both were inside the car (I don't remember how it went) while the parents were shopping or something like that

Your description of both the Pinto's supposed flaw and Ford's reaction is an urban legend. The car was no better nor worse than other cars of the 70s when it came to fire risks. The letter used by lawyers and the media to show Ford's supposed callousness was actually a cost-benefit analysis requested by the NHTSA which was evaluating the potential societal benefits of new safety standards and involved all cars produced in the US by all manufacturers. Of course, once litigation lawyers and Mother Jones got their hands on it, they gave it a completely different spin...

it's because Toyota mostly exports whereas American automakers sell domestically. import cars get scrutinized 10X versus domestic so they have to take corrective action whereas domestic makers simply ignore it. it's not because Toyota is more noble than Ford and GM its because Toyota knew they wouldn't get away with it whereas Ford and GM thought that they would.

Audi had a similar issue with unintended accelerations also mostly confined to the elderly, unlike Toyota they brushed it under the carpet as they never could find a reason other than operator error. Toyota did find a fault, but the prevalence of the fault did not explain all the incidents. IE there was some operator error in there.

You also have to consider when this happened in terms of history. It's less likely today for manufacturers to avoid fixing problems to "save face". (cuz if nobody knows, nobody is gonna think badly of you) But nowadays MOST manufacturers have gotten the message that they're really shooting themselves in the foot cuz people don't like psychopaths...GM, Kataka...

I remember the Pinto problem (from learning the story and seeing actual footage of the problem because I wasn’t around back then XD) but if I remember correctly, the gas tank wasn’t the only problem in that scenario, it was also an electronic problem with the blinker or something that would actually ignite the gas after the tank was ruptured causing an even bigger, deadlier problem. Shows you how much Ford cared about their customers safety at that point
Mitchell Radford
Mitchell Radford Prije 4 godina
A further detail about the Pinto is that the main issue was that the top of the fuel tank was the floor of the trunk. Since it was a hatchback, when you were rear ended and the fuel tank ruptured, the passenger compartment was covered in fuel.

A while ago my mum had a brand new 2004 Mitsubishi Grandis which would randomly start accelerating, one time she was on the motorway with me in the front seat, a five year old at the time, and my brother in the back, a 2 year old. We were at around 80mph when the car randomly started accelerating, the mat was not caught on the pedal nor was my mums foot anywhere near it. She panicked and started pushing on the brake pedal with the car then at 105mph and she could smell the brake pads melting, she put it into neutral and pulled over as soon as she could. Mitsubishi denied it was a fault of the car and blamed my mum. She then sold it and got a 2006 BMW 3 series. Smart woman.

I read an article on the Ford Pinto, about 30 years ago. I remember the original design had the Pinto with an internal bladder to avoid a leak if the tank ruptured. It also had air bags. The powers that be thought these things to be to expensive. Just think, if they had been looking ahead for the good of the company, instead of their own check book, the Pinto, could have been a pretty decent car.

While Ford was unique in costing a potential recall alongside fire death payouts, many cars at that time had problems with fuel leakage and fires after rear-end shunts. The early rear-wheel drive Toyota Corollas were actually almost as bad as the Pinto for safety.

I have experienced floor mat situation 4 times in ford vehicles, always at WOT of course. Twice in crown Victoria, twice in f450. They were all fleet vehicles with thick aftermarket floor mats. I used to take them out when I drove them after that. My own vehicle I cut the mat under the throttle so it can't get caught.

The Merc A-class did not roll in the Elk Test. It became extremely unstable and gave the impression that it *might* roll, but that's not the same thing as actually rolling, is it? Also, the Lancia Beta was notorious for simply falling to bits from corrosion, so removing the servo assistance from the brakes was probably just a minor inconvenience...

I will say one thing on the Key Failure recall mostly because I work at a Chevy Dealer and still have to hand out recall parts for this recall. the only time the ignition switch had the issue of turning off was if you had lanyards and such on your key chain. the keys, ignition and key fobs were designed to be a just the single key and the fob on the key ring not all the lanyards you can find and all your keys.

I'm a tech at Toyota and I worked through the "unintended acceleration " fiasco back in 08-09 the problem was the floor mat would get stuck between the gas and brake pedals. We would cut the pedal shorter so it wouldn't catch. But what he don't tell you conveniently is there was no electronics problem causing the car to go, in fact they couldn't duplicate it so they hired NASA engineers to look at it and the never found anything wrong. So what Toyota did is update software on almost everything so that IF it does stick then when you hit the brakes the computer will kill the throttle.

The "faulty" ignition switches only really became an issue if you had a lot of stuff hanging from your keychain. Another important thing to note is that the manufacturers aren't to blame for a lot of these issues. An easy example is the ignition switches which were made by Delphi - a company created by GM and spun off as fully independent in 1999. I know Chrysler got a lot of flack for their hackable infotainment systems that could be used to shut off the car. Having worked in the automotive industry, it's pretty crazy how little the manufacturers are actually building. Most components come in from all the sub -contractors and should have already been tested to spec and just gets installed on the assembly line.

There's one you should have mentioned that is largely reasonable for many countries having safety testing to begin with. The Chevy corvair. This little rear engined car, truck, and van (yes the corvair was built on several different bodies but it's all the same vehicle) had an issue that GM ignored for a few years then tried a recall which didn't fix it so the go made them shut production down. They liked to catch fire because of bad wiring and poor ventilation of the engine at the rear of the car.

Suzuki's brake thing wasn't a defect, it was a "safety feature" that was meant to prevent your foot from getting hurt against the pedal upon impact so it swung away. It was still stupid though because the brakes couldn't be applied anymore. And GM's ignition switch problem wasn't that you could switch off the ignition while driving, you can do that in pretty much any car that has a key ignition. The problem was that the cars would shut off without warning to the driver.

Once when I was overtaking, my throttle stuck under floor mat, I was driving manual transmission car, I just pressed the clutch, engine revs jump to limit, and somehow moved the floor mat aside with my foot, and the throttle pedal released. Then I stopped the car, open the door, and throw away the floor mat, but I quickly changed my mind, so I put that thing in my trunk. Even today I did not buy new ones that are good ones.

My car suffers a combination of a lot of these cars let me explain: Fuel leaks that caused the engine to stall when coming to a stop then while trying to start the car it wouldn't start either because of the PCM, starter, or bad ignition because it had a recall because often while driving anywhere even on the highway the key could turn itself to off even without you touching it and with that means that you lose all steering, acceleration and even braking (I had this happen twice to me so far). Also a few more things the transmission went out because it had a leak we also replaced the Throttle body cause thats what a mechanic said it was (it wasn't and we dont go there anymore). Last thing we also had a wheel that going at 60-72 mph would cause the entire car to shake, but almost all of this came after only owning the car for 6 months Almost forgot the car is a 2010 Dodge Journey and the 2009 is even worse

1972 Ford Pinto wagon. One of the best cars I ever had. The wagons didn't have the explosion problem. Put 114,000 miles on it, and at 100,000 my mechanic said the overhead cam had no wear. Little 4 on the floor. Could drive around town without using the clutch once I had it in first, just by matching engine speeds to the gearing. Beat the crap out of it. Drove it up logging roads, over hilltops on grass trails, moved all my stuff with it several times. Girlfriend backed it into traffic and totaled it. She was OK. I was pissed.

Noriko Uno passed in 2006 due to the pedal problem from toyota. She had driven me multiple times in my life mostly in the company of my family as she was a close friend to my grandma Yoshiko. I can confirm she was not a driver that went over the speed limit she was an infuriatingly cautious driver the one we all loathe to be behind but realize they’re not doing anything other than being slower. She rarely used the freeway around the area primarily the 210 and 10 ( so cal area) because she hated the chaos of it as it was described to me. Her family was and is still a very special part of my life, for a fact every time I’m in Route 66 I pass and I pass by the restaurant they owned before her husband passed, I’m reminded of her. I believe it was named kishi. I know this is the fucking HRpost comment section but I suppose some validity wouldn’t hurt Thanks for reading

1:08 Interesting fact is that the Porsche Macan performed even worst at the Elk Test, despite it's dynamic qualities comparable to some sports cars. The reason behind that is that among the many electronic systems of the car, one of them detects of possibility of rolling over, causing the desactivation of ABS and ESP. Therefore, the vehicle lost control. Porsche doesn't consider recalling the vehicle because it isn't considered a lacunary. Heck, a Dodge Grand Caravan and a Lincoln Navigator wouldn't roll, so why should a Macan?

The original A-class Merc didn't actually have a badly working stability system when it flipped. It had *none* and it was added afterwards. Also, another brake issue: the original Toyota Yaris Verso had a habit of locking rear brakes first when lightly loaded which may cause spins among other things.

4:33 That would be the PERFECT Driving Instructor's car for any RHD country, since they wouldn't have to install a brake pedal on the passenger side when the mechanism already exists.

The Mk3 Ford Focus RS. After about 3k miles you will need a completely new engine due to the head gasket blowing!

@Heiko Panzlaff takes a shit load less time than getting a new fucking engine

@Ocean Bytez it takes 30 minutes alone to unscrew the under engine protectors so that the coolant can be drained before any of the other bolts have been touched. It is more than 4 hrs. to replace the head gasket ...

Just replace the gasket... if you buy new engines over a piece of rubber being busted i would love to see how many people scammed you. Head gasket keeps oil in and by itself is a minor issue. No oil ruins engines. If a gasket blows you replace it in say 30 minutes. They even now have sport gaskets so if a car has a inadequate gasket the reinforced sport gaskets will do the trick.

Car Throttle: You forgot the "Very Exciting" Ford Crown Victorias, which has a VERY SIMILAR PROBLEM to the Ford Pinto. In an accident, the Crown Vics (Many of whom were genuine patrol cars, since that's what police forces in the 90's preferred to purchase.) had a habit of bending the frame, so the gas tank would be punctured by bolts on the exhaust and suspension. When said pictures would occur, gasoline (petrol) would spray on said hot exhaust pipe and catch fire. Ford spent millions fighting lawsuits and came up with some expensive shielding solution for the tanks. The Maricopa County Sheriff's Department came up with a simpler solution: Reverse any bolt that faced the tank and could puncture it.

I’m pretty sure ford fixed the problem by adding a sheet of metal near the gas can somewhere
