Re: Industry spokesperson

I saw that argument somewhere else, but I don't understand it. Isn't the US claim that the "test detection" is part of the standard ECU software? Why would there be any need to have special software (let alone special cars)?

As soon as I heard about it, I assumed the "feature" would be found in European cars, from many manufacturers, as well.
