Lack of vibration from the engine does make long-distance driving more comfortable for me and my family. I do not feel that this lets me be more alert, though. If anything, kids sleep better in the back... still a plus.
I find the lack of vibration a huge benefit even durning my commute. I find it reduces stress, which in turn reduces fatigue. I have a lot of stop-and-go traffic and sitting in a still car vs one that vibrating, even it you don’t consciously notice it, makes a big difference for me. So yea, I agree.

He was very confused/concerned. Later on the highway, he was worried about the "awful sound" the car made. "Are we going to break down?"
