Week in Review: Recalls, Villains, and Loan Programs
Having monthly sales numbers released on the same day as a holiday filled with jokes and pranks may make it hard to take serious news stories at face value. Especially when one of those stories features a lawnmower that is more powerful than some cars on the road today. Giving that same lawnmower a Guinness World Record? Yeah, that has to be a joke. Even with all the laughs, the week let us know that we haven't heard the last of the GM recall. But luckily, it was all bad news after that. Automakers took full advantage of April Fool's Day, giving us some ridiculous press releases, which had our sides aching with laughter. Jaguar gave us more incentive to cross over to the dark side, while Obama reinstated the green car loan. Friday revealed that John Krafcik, former Hyundai Motor America President and CEO, has joined TrueCar's board of directors. Read below to catch up on the best stories of the week.
