What everyone should know about the most social car ever designed

I just saw a commercial for the Nissan Murano, touted as “the most social car Nissan has ever designed.” This innovation has raised some disturbing questions for me, and I feel I owe it to my readers to share my concerns.

How does it work after you bring this social car home? On the commercial everyone is happy and hip and having a good time. But what if you get home and you’d rather not go out? Will the car go without you?

When you finally find your keys, planning to take a quick trip to the grocery store for some Ben and Jerry’s for a pajama night watching a movie, will the car be down at the neighbor’s house having cocktails? Will it plan block parties behind your back with horrified guests greeted by a hostess wearing her fat pants, no bra, and an embarrassing Cherry Garcia stain on the front of her oversized tee-shirt?

Will there be an indicator on the dashboard that measures ethanol levels so you will know when to call a cab? Since gasoline already contains ethanol, I’m thinking it wouldn’t take much to tip this party animal over the limit.

I don’t know about you but I’ve had enough of drivers’ texting. Will this car and the driver both be texting? Will the car come with its own Twitter and Facebook account? I shudder at the damage it could do to your professional image if it has a LinkedIn account.

Is there a way to alter settings so the car will only participate in social activities that are age appropriate according to the driver? I see a whole new world of worry for parents of teen drivers.

And what about introverts and octogenarians? Will they even be allowed to buy this car? I certainly don’t see this becoming the answer for the painfully shy or the new Buick any time soon.

Yes, it is shocking business to imagine a car that is designed to be social. Shocking indeed and I for one don’t like it. What do you think?

    1. Apparently your car has a blind spot to all this socializing, Bill. At least you don’t have to worry about an assault and battery charge like someone who buys this party animal.

  1. First, either you’re my new best friend in fat pants with Cherry Garcia in your hands…or you’ve been spying on me. More importantly, I suppose, I’m a concerned citizen as well. What if this car is too social? Are we prepared for that? Will we be ostracized because we don’t measure up? My car was my haven for all kinds of unacceptable behavior, now what do I do? Thanks for the tip!

    1. Glad you can relate, Cathy. I’m glad to know you share my concerns. I think there is no end to the damage this social butterfly could do to our reputations!
