    Samsung:
    On September 9th the CPSC and Samsung said "turn off the Note 7 and don't use it." I turned my phone in and got a S7 Edge.
    On September 21st, just 12 days later, I was notified by my Verizon rep that my replacement Note was in stock. I took back the S7E and was in business with the Note 7 again.

    Ford:
    In July I was notified that my Ford (also an Edge) had a bad front passenger airbag that could harm or kill someone. I was told that a recall would follow later. Since then I've allowed no passengers in the front seat. It's now September 22nd and I haven't heard a peep from Ford about the recall. I'm getting pretty tired of fitting 3 people in the back seat with an empty passenger seat.

    Who did a better job at a recall? The Korean company did.

    Comparing these 2 are completely different. I work for a Honda dealership and Honda has handled it the best out of all the car companies involved. They offered loaners to those who were afraid to drive.. Keeping people for 3 months in loaners and footing the bill. But on the side of it.. Your talking about multiple car manufacturers.. And a company.. Takata... Who have to work together to have replacement inflators made and shipped... And we're talking in the 50 million or so range.

    Still, you have to admit that Samsung has handled this exceptionally well. Would be great if more companies followed their example.
