Here’s A Couple Of Things We Hate About Modern Vehicles
Newer is supposed to be better but apparently, this is not always the case. There are some things that are better kept in a simple manner such as few aspects about a vehicle. Don't get me wrong, I like modern vehicles but in a way, there are also a lot of things I don't like about them. It would appear that there are also a lot of people that feel the same way I do.
Everything Is Computerized These Days
Remember those days when you were your own mechanic and you would pop the hood or get under the car and find out what's wrong with it? Sad to say, those days are almost gone. Nowadays, most of the things in modern vehicles are computerized. That being said, certain equipments are needed to diagnose the problems in your vehicle. In turn, you would have no choice but to bring your vehicle to an auto shop or the dealership, which charges you an insane amount of money for something that you could have easily fixed yourself if it were not for the automakers making things complicated by computerizing everything.
New Technology Does Not Work Properly
For us old school type drivers, new technology such as the standard infotainment system makes no sense at all. We've seen countless cases of road accidents due to drivers distracted from texting while driving. Now we see automakers basically adding more distractions with these infotainment systems. What's more troubling is the fact that these infotainment systems don't work properly and as a result, drivers get frustrated and distracted. A report even stated that more people are actually demanding for better infotainment systems and therefore, we should not be surprised if accident rates go higher in the future thanks to these distractive features.
Vehicles Are More Plastic Than Metal
Plastic material is good for making things lighter and all but when automakers go trigger-happy in putting plastics where there shouldn't be any, it poses problems for us. Apparently, one of the reasons for this is because the automakers are cutting down on their production costs. It was reported that even the more expensive kinds of vehicles are not exempted of being more plastic than metal.
Thanks For Nothing Safety Features
Here's the deal, automakers have gone ahead and added all sorts of autonomous safety features like automatic emergency braking and many other so-called safety features. The truth is, automakers are adding all these bunch of stuff that seems nice but in reality, they are just excuses to rack the prices up. The best safety feature is still a "driver's presence of mind" while driving. Without it, people are bound to get into accidents no matter what kinds of safety features get installed in the vehicle. If you want to be safe, then practice responsible driving and polish your driving skills instead of relying on technology to do it for you.
