Ten years ago, amidst the worst financial crises since the Great Depression, the American auto industry almost died. The "Big Three" U.S. car companies of General Motors, Chrysler, and Ford faced potential insolvency.

Rebecca Lindland found herself sitting in the cockpit of a new SUV yelling at the dashboard while driving on a sunny Wednesday afternoon. “I was in the car and it did not understand when I said, 'Call Mom.'
