Nissan Repair/cars adjust to driving style

Question
I've heard it said that the computer in new cars (ECU) 'learn' or adapt to the driver's style of driving and make adjustments accordingly. Is that true?  Thanks

Answer
Hi Lee -

Not to my knowledge. Although it is important to match ECU's to the very vehicle that they were made for, they do not have any adaptive capability. The ECU simply responds to the thousands of signals from the various sensors throughout the vehicle.

Hope this helps -
