From the Paper:

"Through our partnership with Firestone we learned many lessons. Together, we gained valuable insight into the importance of ensuring the quality of the products we make. Important as these evolving notions of corporate citizenship are, they build on what we consider to be the most basic element of citizenship: assuring the safety of those who trust us enough to drive our cars and trucks. Our customers have the same basic understanding: they always have expected us to make safe products and to take action when we discover a safety defect. We've learned that we must seek out new ways to review our suppliers' design and manufacturing processes. In the future, we plan to take a more active role in obtaining and analyzing data maintained by our suppliers concerning the performance of components used in our vehicles."
