I agree with Jon here. While there were some factual issues about the car; e.g. doors and frame not closing, etc. that are more offensive than the statements about JZD. John DeLorean was arrested and charged with trafficking in cocaine on October 19, 1982. That's a fact. It's not pleasant for her or her family, but that doesn't make it any less true.
The show isn't that popular, so it's not going to add any misinformation that can't be corrected by saying, "arrested, but acquitted on grounds of entrapment" to those who are actually interested enough to listen.
For those who think that it's going to be some sort of black mark on the DeLorean world, it's nothing new and, technically, no real disinformation. No silly letter-writing campaign or Facebook nagging is going to do anything but make the show MORE popular. Besides, what would that do? An apology wouldn't change anything and nobody would pay attention to it.
I maintain that the biggest deformation to the DeLorean and JZD is still Back to the Future. It has made the car little more than a joke to most; hence the gas station/car show comments. It also has spurned on dozens of owners who either destroy a good car by lazily making it into a knock-off of the movie car or give up on the car altogether when it has difficulty and spread a bad reputation about its reliability; often, not mutually exclusive.
The DeLorean would be better-served by being in the same boat as the Bricklin; maintained by a devoted fanbase who like the car for the vehicle and its history, instead of half the owners wanting to pretend that they're Doc or Marty.
