GM was the pioneer here, starting to install them in the late '90s, and by 2005 a number of marques (GM, Ford, Isuzu, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Subaru and Suzuki) were putting them on everything. According to the NHTSA, about 91.6% of cars currently have them.

I thought '09s have them... I could've sworn I read about an EDR in the manual somewhere.

We've had to have them in fire engines for a couple of years now. In some cases they can be a blessing and others a curse. I'm not sure how detailed the regular car ones are but for fire apparatus they pretty much tell you anything, who was buckled in, G forces, braking distance, speed, how hard you were braking ect, ect. You wreck a rig and kill someone the info they pull off that black box could potentially get you sued or a criminal trial, likewise it could save you from one.

When this starts causing problems I'll be going back to driving my 280z and 300zx as daily drivers. Technology is a slippery slope and sometimes we as humans go too far.

Most cars already have a black box. The 350 and 370 both have EDR in the airbag system.
