Not that i am against the likes of airbags, VSA and so many other active and passive safety features, but isnt this getting a little ridiculous. It's not just Honda I know.
The back up camera requirement has partly become necessary due to the constant worsening of visibility due to thicker/stronger pillars. But regardless of that they are still a good safety feature as certain areas are always going to be invisible behind the car/truck.
Most of the alleged blindspot can be removed by proper mirror adjustment.
Not that long ago, in RDX forum:
"The technology package is a joke. Stuff like that are already available on Hyundais. That stuff is just common equipment.
I'm curious why Acura is still holding off on offering really technologically advanced features like Blind Spot assist, CMBS, or all around camera systems. That's technology."
