"While there aren't indications that Ford or Nationwide will misuse tracking data, the truth remains that you're sharing your driving patterns with third parties."

Yeah, right.

Big Brother is already collecting DNA information from millions of gullible citizens using ancestry services and colon cancer screening services.

Now they want to know where I go and how I go there..

State Farm made the same offer. I didn't respond to the letter...

It's bad enough that cars have "black boxes" these days.

That's one reason none of my cars are newer than 12 years old.

I believe our '08-'09's have black boxes...after a crash, a read out can be obtained...speed, brake use, rpm, etc...something like the previous 30 seconds or so.

According to this Source, the 08-09 Mustangs do not. But the 2001 Mustangs DO.
