    This recently happened in the US of A.
    The accelerator on an Hyundai Elantra got stuck, and the vehicle reaches speeds of 125 mph ( 200+ kmph ).

    It din't end well, with the driver flipping the car 4 times, to avoid a truck, however walking away uninjured.

    Hoping this issue does not come up with Elantras on sale in other parts of the world.. It's one sexy looking machine!

    ^^ +1 to that? How was BMW responsible? in fact it made a case stronger that despite being driven at such a high speed the driver survived.

    Toyota had 3 incidents only, which resulted in a recall of 2.3 Million or 23,00,000 vehicles.

    I am so so so sorry but I have quoted my post without editing to what I wrote earlier..
    Where did I mention BMW ??

    In fact Princess Diana was killed in a Merc !!
    read all about it here.

    As for accidents by some companies model, will somebody be kind enough to share as to how many accidents happen and how many deaths occur ? and how do the companies respond?

    I am sorry again.

    Whoops yea.. well Merc or BMW .. not really relevant which car company. Very very few car accidents or fatalities can be traced back to manufacturer defect. Most accidents occur due to human error which was also the case with Princess Di's death.

    In case of the OP the boy survived unhurt even when the car tumbled 4 times. Modern cars have pretty high safety standards.

    The whole point is that a SINGLE accident reported in teh media or a forum is NEVER going to stop sales./.

    I have suffered a death of my FRIEND who was travelling in a Merc. we pposted all pics and reports on the social media and media in general but nothing happened !!

    and it nevber will
    coz the buyers will never understand that !!

    Rec ently !! just in the Desert Storm one of my friends TOPPLED his Pajero 4 times 360degrees coz his steering jemmed..

    now even the company is refusing to accept that !!
    that even though we have videos of that !!
    so we need to grow beyond these points,,

    make some earth shattering posts and thread s !!

    People have died in Lamborghinis as well. The company investigated the matter as to how the door came apart.

    The reason why your friend will not get a word from the company is because the company will not cover any damage/accident occurring as a result of being driven in a race/rally or any purpose other than regular road usage. Some SUV manufacturers won't even support if the accident happens off-road, even though ironically the vehicle is designed/destined to be driven off road.

    Well you were sure to answer this, weren't you?

    Yes accidents kill all who are in whatever car or automobile.. so what is the point of this thread??

    I may sound rude and badtameez but I reiterate my question again .. til I am satisfied..

    fyi.. my friend was on National Highway and not in any rally route and thus your doubts are settled or should be..

    people wil die and so it won't make a difference ! that is the whole pint I was making from the start !!

    There is no way to assure driver safety outside of Govt. sanctioned Safety norms. If say a crash occurs with the car driving within the speed limit and without driver error, which results in a Fatality then the Car Manufacturer should be obliged to investigate.

    But the thing is that if any Car Company comes forward to investigate a single crash ..even out of goodwill.. it will make the company appear guilty .. and ruin its reputation n trust.
