    Probably would be barred as inflammatory, but it would be tempting to put a model coffin on the empty chair.

    I am not a lawyer, at the dealership I do business with, not Toyota, I am informed when my car is in for maintenance or repair of any outstanding issues as such. When I dealt with Honda they followed suit. Saying that a letter was mailed is implying that it was received which may or may not be the case. It is costly, but then I guess a life is not worth a certified letter these days?
