    The talking heads on TV today are covering the big "gross negligence" court case involving front seats flopping back into the back seat passenger's area, effectively making the rear passengers the air bags/crash cushions for the front passengers in rear impact accidents. The cost to fix the problem is a little over one dollar but has been ignored for decades by most car makers except MB. Even the NTSB knew about the problem but did nothing. I thought we had this problem solved after the VW bug seats killed/paralyzed so many people in rear impact crashes 40 years ago.
    Where is Tesla in the mix? Did they copy the MB design or go with the majority of the industry? I'm just not comfortable using my grandkids as crash cushions.
