The New York Times recently ran a story on the frustrating glitches that faulty software can cause drivers. Sure some seem just so paltry like the family with a minivan that would shoot heat full blast on the kiddies in the back even while the front had cool a/c blowing. Sweating children aside one of the subject's Mercedes C230 had to be taken to the dealer 14 times for errors in the software with no resolution. The 2001 model just sputtered while driving, gave the wrong service update alarms and one day just decided not to work that's why some companies like IBM are trying to create software integration for each specific model. Of course that doesn't solve some of the electronic gremlins in today's more and more complex autos.
