Default Event Data Recorders in Acuras?

I thought I glimpsed an article that said Honda Civics have Event Data
Recorders... Is this true? Do any Acuras have them?

You can buy recorders that hook up to the ECU and record whatever
ststs are available there for later examination. They're mostly for
fleet owners who want to make sure their drivers aren't cowboys, or
anxious fathers who want to make sure young son isn't drag racing.

Or for your own use you can hook a portable computer into the ECU and
make a continuous record of all data in a neat graphic format.

This outfit is one of several that has the hardware and software.

Event recorder.

If a fault is detected the PCM will record the pertinent info that is
related to the fault. This is known as "freeze data"
Is this what you mean?
