I think they're just trying to put everything out there in the open, thinking it will show that they aren't sweeping things under the rug anymore. While that is admirable, to have 54 recalls in a year really tarnishes your company's image to the public. People hear a recall, and even if its for a light bulb in the door panel, they dont care.

Yep, they're paying for it. A couple billion in cash as well as the trust and loyalty of its entire customer base. That's why I'm saying it's a pretty even situation: They're getting what they deserve and they're doing what they are expected to do. Of course that's only now, rewind within months and you've got all the excuses and cover-ups, but at least now justice is served.
