Latest headlines - Fiat Chrysler Warns 4.8 Million: Don't Use Cruise Control - https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/nati...483692691.html This is scary

A partial reprint of the article;
Fiat Chrysler is recalling 4.8 million vehicles in the U.S. because in rare but terrifying circumstances, drivers may not be able to turn off the cruise control.

The company is warning owners not to use cruise control until the cars, SUVs and trucks can be fixed with a software update.

Fiat Chrysler says the condition can occur if the cruise control accelerates at the same time an electrical short-circuit happens. But the brakes are designed to overpower the engine and the vehicles could still be stopped.

Shifting into park would cancel the cruise, but tapping the brakes or turning off the cruise control button won't work.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

1M Chainsaws Recalled For Operating After Being Turned Off; https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/busi...482837771.html

Harbor Freight Tools this week issued a recall for about a million electric chainsaws after three people were injured when their chainsaws continued to operate after being turned off.

There were 15 reports of malfunctioning power switches in all, and one person's laceration injuries were serious enough to require stitches, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said in its recall notice.

Harbor Freight Tools's recall affects two models of 14-inch chainsaws sold under three brand names: Portland, One Stop Gardens and Chicago Electric. The Portland and One Stop Gardens brands are green and black. The Chicago Electric brand chainsaws are red and black.

The chainsaws, which retailed for about $50, were available at Harbor Freight Tools stores nationwide and through the Camarillo, California-based company's website from May 2009 through February 2018.

Free replacements are available at the company's stores.

Harbor Freight Tools can be reached at 800-444-3353 Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. PT, or by email at recall@harborfreight.com.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
