This is not really Octopus Garden. The noontime’s heat was at its peak, so it is wise to get to a shade. Looking at the view, I wondered about a place called Octopus garden, a fictional place in a song Octopus Garden. I just recalled a song, by Ringo Starr(Beatles, 1969). It goes like this(excerpts) :

…I’d ask my friends to come and see, An octopus’ garden with me
I’d like to be under the sea, In an octopus’ garden in the shade.

We would be warm below the storm, In our little hideaway beneath the waves
Resting our head on the sea bed, In an octopus’ garden near a cave
We would sing and dance around, because we know we can’t be found

I’d like to be under the sea, In an octopus’ garden in the shade…

Possible Rollaway Issue Makes GM Recall Certain Buicks, Chevys And GMCs

General Motors is conducting a new safety campaign on vehicles that may be equipped with defective electronic park lock levers.
The recall focuses on 7,620 units in the United States that, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), could allow drivers to remove the ignition keys without them being in Park mode, leading to possible rollaway and increasing the risk of injury for occupants and bystanders.

Mayor Stanley Least Of Flint’s Problems…The following are excerpts from a column published on Friday, December 14, 2001, with the above title by Bill Johnson, editorial writer for the Detroit News. ” Those seeking ( Mayor Stanley’s ) ouster are waging this campaign for all the wrong reasons.

We’ve got more takata recalls

Hey guys, it’s Ken here with 4WheelOnline.

Today we’re going to talk about the latest news in the Takata Airbag Recall and how you can find out if your vehicle is on the list.

Honestly, this whole thing is a disaster. It’s so convoluted and beyond difficult to figure out what’s even happening.

The brief rundown is that japanese company Takata manufactured “non-desiccated” airbags which don’t have enough drying agent to combat humidity.

Like we’ve got here in Florida, you just walk from your front door to the mailbox and you’re drenched in sweat.)

Problems occur after years of exposure to heat and humidity. When these airbags deploy they can do so with far too much force. If that happens the inflator, a metal cartridge, may rupture shooting pieces through the airbag straight at the person it’s supposed to protect.

And there’s been a number of cases where things went wrong. One man bled to death after a piece of metal slit his jugular vein. Another woman in Orlando “looked like she had been shot” according to police.

Not what I want happening when my airbag deploys.

On May 4th 2016 Takata recalled another 35-40 million vehicles, adding to the 29 million that were already recalled in 2014. For a grand total of just 70 million… holy fuck…that’s a lot of recalls.

The recalls even got recalls. Replacement airbags could have the same issues down the line!

And then this week we found out Toyota, FCA, Volkswagen and Mitsubishi were still using airbags that would eventually have to be recalled.

How can they do that, you ask? Well, this is such a huge recall, the biggest recall in the history of anything, that the NHTSA is requiring the recalls to be filed by manufacturers with a rolling deadline up to 2018. And let’s be clear, that’s just the date that the recalls have to be filed.

The airbags have to be replaced by December 31st 2019. That’s THREE YEARS of more potential deaths and injuries. And that’s if Takata can even manufacture enough airbags to replace all 70 million of them.

A Japanese woman is now filing criminal charges against Nissan and Takata after a piece of metal from the airbag was removed from her wounds. Her vehicle was recalled in 2015 but when she brought it in to be replaced the dealership didn’t have enough replacement parts at the time.

Seems like a valid case.

Recalls within the US are being prioritized and are going in three zones based on Temperature and Humidity.

Zone A is described as Hot and humid and includes the south, California, Hawaii and other small islands around the US.

Zone B and C are less Hot and Humid and include, well, the rest of the country.

In 2015, CBS said Takata tested 30,000 airbags, and just 265 ruptured which is only 0.8% That means you’re much more likely to be saved by your airbag than injured by it. So don’t try anything like disable your airbag

Our poll today is How do you think Takata should be held responsible? Should they be fined?
Should they be barred from selling airbags in the united states? Should their assets be sold and the company shut down? Vote in our poll right here.

Do you have another idea for Takata’s fate? Let us know in the comments.

So how can you find out if your vehicle is included in this recall?

In the US go to this website (www.safercar.gov). There you can enter your VIN and get details.

It’s probably a good idea to check this every few months since there is still another few years left of this.

A nice surprise to see one of these still getting around, can’t recall the last time I actually saw one, but a good spot at the end of the day.
