Wow, where did you get this info? I certainly believe you and hope you're right. I think it's a wonderful change because you can't pop the current Odys into neutral for towing without a special tool that you need to use while crawling under the car. Try that in -30 C on the snow-covered 401 highway in Ontario!!!One thing that I find interesting is that for the 2022 ody they brought back the physical gear shifter. Go figure.
