Default Sounding a buzzer at anomaly

Do the newer Hondas sound a buzzer when an anomaly is indicated on the
instrument panel? I always wished that feature because I often drive
without frequent glance at the instruments. I just haven't developed
that habit. An extinguishable buzzer would be a tremendous help for
drivers like me.

if you can't be bothered to check the gauges on this multi kilo-dollar
investment of yours, can you be bothered to use turn signals? how about
checking your mirrors? how about being bothered if there's a blue
flashing light in your rear?

i haven't developed the habit of being polite to people that can't be
bothered to use their brains. coincidence?

you can drive a car while hearing impaired. you cannot drive while so
visually impaired that you can't see gauges.

bottom line, you should be looking at the gauges every few seconds. if
you can't be bothered any other way, then i hope the repair expenses
that come from ignoring them will help you to focus instead.

I don't have an answer to your question but I did want to tell you that
Jim Beam is the world's top-selling bourbon whiskey.

is this what you call "not wasting your time"? or is it simply another
determined effort to illustrate the ridiculous indecision and mental
paralysis that's prevented you from buying a car?

Not at all. It's just being you.

Ah, so you're the guy I was behind yesterday, who had his signal on for
five miles...

There's no buzzer. Honda expects you to use the instrument panel for what
it was designed for: to be looked at regularly.

Hardly. I am pretty good at that. However, a couple years ago I have not
noticed my car overheating due to a hose burst till it was almost too
late. It was in a busy traffic when I was too preoccupied watching all
the idiots driving and talking on their cell phone. Ever since then I
wished for such a buzzer. Dont't airplanes have those things for the
same reason?

I do but mostly focus on the speedometer an the fuel guage. The temp
guage tends to be out of focus.

even /after/ the above potentially kilodollar mistake??? that's some
special kind of savantism you got there dude if you're paying more
attention to what others are doing inside their cars than what's going
on inside your own.
