I bought a ford explorer. (run of the mill, common American product) The tires blew out on the freeway and it careened off the road into a tree. Should this be recalled? (true story, like service packs!)
My opinion is not biased either, I use a custom built winXP install in my truck successfully, it's tweaked to run good on SSD. However I am an advanced user, windows XP does not stand a chance against an inexperienced user, it's well known and proven.

it was never really a defect. the blown tires are a result from under-inflation. they of course made the sidewalls stronger so the tires can hold up to the stupidest of people now, but firestone got a really bad rap for something that wasnt completely their fault.
