Everyone makes mistakes. Everyone. The best way to judge the character of a person or an organization is how quickly they react to fix those mistakes. It's why anyone of conscience hates the NFL right now. What's the best automotive example of this?

They instituted one of the quickest redesigns ever. Reports indicate that Honda was already working to fix the car before it even went on sale.
But that's easy, what's a better example?
