$77,000 for a sofa car on stilts?

The roll-away wheels kinda make it sporty, I guess.

GM recalls nearly 69,000 vehicles to prevent 'roll-away' problems, fix ASAP and get the vehicles back on the road in correct working order. This is Not good when your vehicle rolls away and you did not know about it.
Better Quality Control and craftsmanship are in order at this auto company.
And, you can always use the 'parking brake' when parking.
Whatever the size or shape of the vehicle, vehicle manufactures Produce and the population ‘Drives’ vehicles with high MPG, are very safe, reliable, have a ‘reasonable’ cost and a good ‘value’ for the money.
The price of fuel at the pump is too high!
