Why not? It saved a young lady years ago who'd been carjacked. She put her automovehicle into neutral while driving through an intersection and did the tuck and roll.

CHALLENGER SALES PULL AWAY FROM CAMARO- From Autoline Daily
[youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... seTgkl5RtQ[/youtube]
Chevrolet and Ram are in a big argument over who’s pickup outsells the other. But there’s another argument brewing. The Dodge Challenger now outsells the Chevrolet Camaro. The tipping point came last year and not only is the Challenger pulling away, it’s getting awfully close to the Mustang. Remember the Challenger sits on one of the oldest platforms in the business. It’s a reworked version of the Mercedes E-class left over from the days of DaimlerChrysler. FCA was going to put it on an Alfa Romeo platform, but that didn’t work out. So they’re revamping the existing platform and it should be in showrooms within the year.

Well at least it will still be relatively reliable in that case.
