    Article about vehicle data being sold to insurance companies. (On older versions of Chrome, disabling Javascript was sufficient to see full article.) This isn't just by vehicle mfrs.

    WRT Toyota statement that data was provided "anonymously", I don't know how an insurance company can provide a specific rate based on your driving style if the data is truly anonymous.

    Sharing a data point, USAA has an app that runs on my iPhone to record driving metrics. They claim to offer discounts as your driving style is analyzed including cell phone and hard braking practices.

    Well they could at least tell if the general public is driving aggressively, not you specifically, and base the insurance rate on that data.
