Wow that is crazy, I've heard of some cars being equipped with these, but on a Civic LX? I think it is a good idea and everything, but don't you think it's just another way for "the man" to hold you down. How crazy is it that you pay your own money for something and not having the choice to do whatever it is you want to do with it. Without someone else going in after you, and "checking up" on what you have been up to. It is no different from Teen Drug tests for parents. On the other hand, like Boilermaker said it gives Honda a chance to save their *** on costly repairs that would have been covered under warranty. Either way, it's crazy, and just shows how much closer we are getting towards all those sci-fi books in which everyone is being monitored 24/7.
