      Could be, I do know it was a honda motor in a honda car. About as much detail I cared to know about it. But, being NA, it sounded good.

      I drove one of those with that feature on, I wouldn't trust it much further than I could throw the battery pack. Thanks, but no thanks, I'll drive.

      Sure, I care about safety. I know how to drive, I use traction tires in the winter... It is a shame I have to worry about the idiot texting while driving a 5000+ lb pickup/SUV while commuting.
