The benefit of it is the humour of having a woman nag at you even while you're in the car alone! It's ok in small doses but can really P*ss you off after a while. If you have really sensitive tyre pressure sensors then you're in for a right ear bending. "Warning: Front right tyre, check the pressure. Front left tyre, pressure abnormal, slow down, re-adjust pressure as soon as possible! Warning: Rear left tyre is flat - change wheel". AAAAAAAAAARRRRGGGHHH Shut up woman!!!!

I had a Laguna II with faulty ABS. EVERY TIME THE CAR WAS STARTED: "Anti-lock braking system faulty, normal braking system in operation, consult your Renault dealer". I don't have the heart to press the mute button. It's a feature you hate to love.
