    I was thinking... I know that you and others post recalls also, but there is no specific place for them here. What are the chances for a dedicated section to post recalls? It would make it a lot easier to find one that was already posted when researching.

    Makes sense to me. I'll see what I can do to make a separate section. Thanks Jeff....
