Aye, keep that in mind whenever you get out of it! Not a happy bunny...
Unfortunately as more cars are run by software, we are the testers of it just like new cell phone OS' and new versions of windows, etc. It is almost impossible to test every situation. While this is a pretty large oversight due to the waste of gas and pollutants, I think this deserves recall status. In Maryland, you can get a ticket for leaving your car running unattended.
