Saying you can't recall or remember seems to be a workable defense, at least for Politicians.

Yep. When submitting a MA tax return, it says under the signature line that what you are submitting is the truth. If you lie on the question about out of state purchase brought into MA, you are committing tax evasion.

I would hope that toll both ticket times being used for speed enforcement would at least incite a boycott of said toll road, and at a maximum incite a riot and revolt.
Unless of course the country can agree on a sound scientific engineering principle of setting speed limits at the 85th percentile, rather than an arbitrary slow speed limit used for maximizing revenues for the government and insurance companies.

I'd guess with all of the treacherous overpaid irresponsible FIRE industry junk in the Boston area, that tax evasion thing isn't exactly an enforced law.

Two brand-new recalls on Audi today...one for breaking sunroofs and one for potential fire hazard.
I know many feel recalls aren't a quality issue, but like a minor problem, they usually involve an unscheduled visit to the dealer...particularly with today's extended service intervals.

My old Audi doesn't have a sunroof, but I admit the new one on order does.
How many Audi's were recalled though, didn't you argue that the quantity recalled should be weighed when considering recalls a problem?
All I know is Audi reimbursed me nearly $700 for the induction control module issues I had (and extended the warranty to 7 years or 120,000 miles). That went a long way towards my new order, along with the 1,000 dollar loyalty rebate.
Acura had a $1,500 conquest rebate, if that was doubled, it would have been more effective.

I remember speaking to someone that was in the "seatbelts" can be dangerous camp.
He provided an anecdotal story of someone surviving a horrific roll over accident because they were ejected from the vehicle. Had they been in the vehicle in the chair strapped by the seat belt, they surely would have been dead.
How he could reason this one type of accident in a million takes away the other 999,999 possibilities of an accident where seat belts could help is lost upon me.
He also is a motorcycle driver and thinks baseball cap style helmets are just as good as full face and head protection.

Andres, there's one thing we can agree on--that guy you describe is delusional!

Those are good incentives. Since you liked your current car, why wouldn't you buy the same make again--especially with incentives like you enjoyed on the new and old cars? I don't blame you for that.
I think a recall on an "8" series Audi is a little different than a recall on a low-price, high-volume Cruze or Focus, though.
I remember when fewer than 5K Caddy SRX's were recalled for a fire hazard. A photo of one on fire--the same photo--was posted on the old GM forum by the same guy every bit of ten times--perhaps more. Just sayin'.
