Geez, this is funny decision to destroy the cars that were pretty much brand new. If their cars were good enough, they should have let it back on the market. (It was simply tilted for godsakes!) At least they could have donated to a 3rd world country at the worst. Mazda gets a big thumbs down for wasting earth’s resources, they put their company image before mother nature.

Might corrosive fluids seep into chambers where they don’t belong? Was the Cougar Ace now full of lemons?
