Exactly....Yea I just read to about how DC could have solved the whole "flaming brakes" problem. Switch fluid and pads....Idiots.

"Chrysler claimed that the brakes simply hadn't been broken in - the police responded that they expected cars to be ready for use when delivered, and nobody else made squad cars whose brakes burst into flame."

Big surprise. Cost cutting at work.

lol....I don't think roasted cops is a good thing. Especially when the auto-makers know what the flaws are but fail to fix them.

No it wouldn't(not that I ever had Human). The bottom line is these are big companies and are there to make a profit. They weigh the cost to fix things against to cost to pay lawsuits for injuries or dealth. It's not right but thats the american way. The only way that will change is to make the execs criminally responsible like they do in Japan. A million dollar lawsuit is one thing. 20 years in jail is something different. I bet bill ford would have a different attitude about the crown vic. DC would put better brakes on a police car.

Yes it happend again in the 04 Michigan State Police Test.

"One of the most important facets of police car performance is probably stopping power. The Impala did best here, in 134 feet, while the Dodge took second place at 137 feet. Neither showed evidence of severe fading, and there were no repeats of the embarassing brake overheats of the first Intrepid squads. The Fords both stopped in similar but excessive times - 150 feet, fully 26 feet more than the Impala. Unfortunately, the Dodge exhibited flaming brake syndrome during one test."

So which is it? That's a contradictory statement.

Wow since I did read over that, yea that does not make any sense. I'm guessing it was ok until they did some severe test on it?

I think they were only making reference to the FIRST test that did have "flming brakes". As though they think that test will forever taint the opinions of future tests.
