Okay, is that sort of like "once we figure out who's got the bad trucks, we'll get to work on letting you know" ? Is that any way to run a company?

If you've got a bad truck, don't take a chance with a deadly defect like this could be. Get a Burdge attorney. Getting rid of lemon trucks is what we do. Everyday. Getting back your money is kind of nice too, folks.
