2013 Scion FR-S Long Term Road Test

2013 Scion FR-S: My Imaginary Friend

August 10, 2012


So there I was, driving away from CasaHashi early one morning on my way into Edmunds HQ. Then I hear a beep. Beep? Why are you beeping? What have I done?

That beep was accompanied by the passenger seatbelt warning light, but I was alone. Oh...so...alone. Strangely enough, the only thing on the passenger seat was my iPhone.

"That can't possibly be heavy enough to trigger the seatbelt warning, can it?" I thought to myself. Sure enough as soon as I removed the phone, the warning went away. A put the phone back and then a few seconds later, beep.

This seems far too sensitive to me. That threshold has got to be set higher than a few ounces, don't you think?
