It will only operate below speeds of 1.2 mph.

Imagine being caught up in a freak road rage incident and some wacko runs up to your car as your trying to pull away, pulls open your door and stops your jeep dead in its tracks! (granted your doors are unlocked to begin with)....That be some scary shit.

But if your seat belt is buckled than it wont autopark and you could drive away like any other car

Good reason to always wear your seat belt.

Re: Shifter recall- unintended consequence that costs us $$$ now

Funny, I went to a car wash today and the high school kid couldn't figure out the shifter. I just clicked the seatbelt over the empty driver seat and it stayed in neutral. An easy fix.

I agree with this and that most automatic car washes scratch paint however some of us that live in dense metro areas don't have self wash options. I would if I didn't have to drive 20 minutes to find one.

Ouch. He was a young guy. Crushed to death. I can't imagine the fear and pain the last few minutes of his life consisted of.

O.P., If you accidentally off yourself, I promise I won't make a joke out of it...

Re: Shifter recall- unintended consequence that costs us $$$ now

...and the recall pre-dates the unfortunate accident that left that great actor dead. It wasn't released "because" of that event.
