any clippings behind-none-! ..This lawn mower was expensive- but look at how it mows !!! Just great- BUT !! It broke down every 8-10 weeks.
Unacceptable- no matter how well it mowed when it worked. When you took it back to Home Depot and demanded your money back - which you surely would vowing never to buy this brand again- The manager came up to you and said- "Well this is a very high tech mower - you can't expect it to run without breaking down every now and then" . You would still demand your money back and that would be that.
Now take that argument and mentality to a car that costs $50-100K.

Does this still make sense ?
No, because home depot would never carry a mower of this quality.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
