>>Any ideas what a domestic company would have told me had my ECU failed at 100K out of warranty?

My Sable will hit 199,000 miles when I drive home today. Amazing car considering how I've beaten it, and have had almost no problems. It has had fewer problems than my wife's Camry.

Nokia CEO Blames Salesmen For Windows Phone Struggles

Airline_Sickness_Bag Re:True stories (435 comments)

When I go into a store, they push the WP7 phones - they often are $0.01. The salespeople just want to make a quick sale, and a "free" phone is one of the fastest ways.
