AA - give us back temperature gauges, ditch electronic parking brakes

Jay Nagley

An AA survey of 21,000 members suggests drivers want better basic features, not more electronics.

The two things people most wanted were temperature gauges and twin reversing lights. We totally agree about temperature gauges: on a hot summer's day in a traffic jam, it is useful to know if an engine is starting to get hot, rather than a warning light telling you it's too late and you have to stop.
