Business Model

value the safety of its customers so cheaply

I heard somewhere that some companies (and mostly US companies) looked at the cost of fixing safety issues vs the potential payout in lawsuits from victims and their families then made a decision, based purely on the lower cost, as to which way to go... Sounds like the business model for Fiat/Chrysler.
