Perhaps they should focus on producing more reliable cars and a more abundant parts supply chain

Just not a safe thing for some people on the road. Some driver will kill a bunch of people trying to 'compose music'!!!

The music is fine, but I'm not sure I want my every move to be tracked.

Must be a need. Maybe it could inform the driver that the car is equipped with turn signals.

maybe they will fine tune it to help people drive more reasonably saving fuel w/o even realizing it is happening ;) Wonder if they also play subliminal messages to get you to trade in more often or go to your dealer for maintenance or to buy other unnecessary options ;)

Something to look forward to when they take the controls out of your hands
