We do safety and/or quality briefs at the start of meetings. In a meeting this week the brief was on the GM pickup recall for no secondary hood latch. I suggested the owners were also at fault for not noticing the lack of a latch. People started looking at each other. Someone asked how would you know. I asked how many had never opened their hood. It was nearly half the room (most of the females, some of the males). I had to explain that the secondary latch is the one you still have to address after popping the inside lever. People who never open the hood are not going to use a dipstick. I'm not sure they deserve cars to drive but they have them.
