Thumbs down Black Box

Can anyone tell me if there is a so called black box in the 2004 Chevy Silverado. This is the unit that collects infomation on your driving.

I don't think there's definitive info available to the consumer, but I understand a fair number of newer cars have them. A little unnerving; you could have an accident and the insurance company/lawyers could recover it and use it against you. Not a very comforting thought IMO.

Here are some articles on the subject:
