U.S.A.:GM, Ford boost van safety items

October 22, 2003
Detroit Free Press

General Motors Corp. will begin selling 15-passenger vans next month with standard stabilizing equipment, which the automaker says will increase the safety of a vehicle that the federal government contends has a significant rollover risk.

Meanwhile, Ford Motor Co., which also makes 15-passenger vans, said it will begin affixing rollover-warning labels on new models of the van.

Ford said it also has strengthened the safety language in the vans' owners manuals, alerting drivers to the higher center of gravity and warning against abrupt maneuvers.

GM said in May it would install the stability enhancement systems as standard equipment in GMC Savana and Chevrolet Express vans beginning with 2004 models.

My first car was a 67 Mustang Coupe, 2nd one was a 67 Cougar XR-7, 3rd one was a 66 Mustang Coupe. Why did I get rid of these cars for ? I know why, because I'm stupid, stupid, stupid.

My next Ford.....
