Re: Road Safety
@Sunita, a sensor controlled car is is great as long as they work. But they don't. I bought a 2004 BWM M3 a couple of years ago. Went to drive home last Friday and learned it has this wonderful (sarcasm included) system called Emergency Limp Home Mode, where it kills all the power to the car because it thinks you have a serious problem based on sensor input. The darn thing stalled my car in rush hour traffic in a construction zone where you can't pull to side of road. Thankfully when I restarted, everything reset and car started functioning normally again. Been a week without any more incidents, so what am I supposed to learn from that? My car was having a bad hair day?
I don't remember having those problems when my cars had a carburetor, for the most part things failed gracefully enough you had time to get them fixed. Now you are not sure if you need to fix your car, your sensors or your onboard computer.
