Given the preponderance of deceptive gibberish that so often permeates automotive sales and marketing, it seems to me that the question is a legitimate one, this in the spirit of "the devil is in the details". "Caveat emptor" being the appropriate by-phrase for any potential automotive product buyer, I think, it simply makes good sense to determine exactly what apparently important words mean. As the old saw goes: "The buyer needs a hundred eyes, the seller not one". Why not then ask question(s) up front and be sure rather than get bitten when it's too late to find out what wordings mean?

Well spoken, I think, It's not the meaning of "true" that one would need be aware of as much as trust and deception between two parties.
