There's another twist. Some month ago, when I was at a car show in Boston, I sat in the S-Class Benz. Beautiful car - but man, I've never seen so many buttons and electronics. If you're technically minded, then those can be seen as "toys". But to the technically challenged - all that crap is overwhelming.JPinTO said:They are a great idea and I'm just as much of an electronics nut as the next guy. But, I actually like to keep my car as simple as possible.
Problem #1: Car Manufacturers charging far more than the general market for their (generally) inferior products. Look at the price of car Nav systems for instance. I can buy a top of the line Garmin with everything for half the money and I get to move it from car to car.
Problem #2: What happens when this stuff breaks? Worse, what happens when it breaks out of warranty? Yikes! A lot of the problems people encounter with the cars are the electronic stuff acting up.
