We don't know whether 737 Max MCAS update is coming or Boeing: Anti-stall safety fix delayed

No.

But what I do have is my car's auto-brake (and emergency brake assist). And there's a whole confusion of sensors in the bumper and grill area to support it. And the failure mode is "all my fault" (it'll only brake, or brake assist, if I'm stupid enough to hit something and it knows it) as opposed to *maybe* getting rear ended instead of hitting something. Might hit something anyway...

Cars are not planes, in other words.
