IDk about that. I believe its a good thing. I mean what if small children run behind the car. If they are small you can't see them. So, I think it helps just in case of something like that.

Yep i like pulling the dog leg back and feeling it go into 4x4 instead of turning a switch and hoping you hear a clunk, especially when your in the middle of the woods in the middle of the night!

This will sound just a little ignorant, but some cartoons seem like they are a little gay. Think about it. The Wiggles, High School Musical, and others. I don't hate gays. Seeing as how they are people too.

the new Benz commercials talking about the auto crash detection and all the other "safety" nannies makes my blood boil whenever i see it. now lazy people no longer have to look out the windshield while driving, stay awake behind the wheel, turn there stupid fat heads to look at the mirrors when changing lanes, manually apply the brakes to avoid a collision or even parallel park themselves!
