Are you bothered by the fact that your car is too complicated to figure out? Do you wish you could buy a simple car that does a good job of getting you back and forth from work? Are you sure we need all the stuff that comes on cars today? Are you smart enough to turn on your heater or a/c when you need it and turn it off when you don't and force everyone in the car to deal with the same setting. Can you scoot your own fat bottom back and forth on a seat without a six-way power seat with memory. Can you figure out what to do with a clutch pedal? And would you like to look under the hood and be able to identify all the wires and hoses? And if computers are so great, why can't your car tell you in plain english, what's happening when something goes wrong? The message, now is go to the dealer and don't forget your credit card. And when you get to the dealer, wouldn't you like to speak to a real mechanic, and not a vacuum cleaner salesman on comission. The reason I'm venting like this is because I just came from a Toyota dealership where my brother took his Tundra after it quit on the freeway. He called me in a panic. They told him he needed to have a valve job and parts of the fuel system replaced. I told them I want to check for myself and had the truck towed to my shop. The problem was a completely dead battery, a few vacuum leaks and some dirty electrical connections. A few hours work, a new battery, a pcv valve, a serptine belt, a few vacuum lines, some fluid and filter changing, and it runs like brand new. My poor brother had no chance when he arrived at the dealership. They had him. They would have done a good job and after they finished there would have been no way to know that they did more work than was necessary. They could prove that they did what they listed on the receipt and he would drive away with a more servicable vehicle, and I can only imagine what the total would have been. When he opened the hood he was lost, and so would most other people be. For all the features on a new car you give up more than the sticker price, you give up control.
