Re: Wow, DC is really out to get Huawei...

Slightly related, a couple of decades ago Consumer Reports made a video that alleged that the Suzuki Jimny was unsafe and turned over easily. Apparently a whistleblower then told Suzuki the video was faked, it was filmed on the side of a hill with the camera turned to make it look level so the angle at which it fell over was much greater than appeared. Nothing to do with protecting Jeep, of course.

Suzuki sued CR. It took 8 years of legal tricks to avoid coming to court before eventually CR had to settle out of court. But by then Suzuki had given up and eventually left the US altogether.

It is now mildly amusing that Jeep is owned by Fiat.
