2011 Ford Fiesta
Ford's Curve Control system
I know what some of you are thinking—do we really need another safety feature when all people need to do is learn how to drive? Well, the answer is…YES. No matter how many performance driving or driving safety courses are out there, there are a lot of people who feel that they are as good as Mario Andretti during an F1 race while they are making their daily commute to the office. Most of us have witnessed the over aggressive enter a corner and either wind up in someone else’s lane or worse off the road entirely.
Personally, I would like to see people get more driver training and rely less on the vehicles to save their bad driving habits, but I do applaud Ford for looking out for the publics general safety. I know a lot of soon to be Fiesta owners are breathing a sigh of relief that the new 2011 Ford Explorer will be able equipped with such technology. The only question we have now is, will you be able to disable it or will it always be on?
