What happened to the ability to buy a SIMPLE car????

November 27, 2018 04:35AM
We bought my Wife a Honda CRV. The inside has toooooooooooo many bell n whistles. WAY WAY too much relies on a touch screen on the dash. Too many "safety" features that I think are a distraction....Like the steering wheel shaking if it senses the vehicle veering. I HATE HATE buying new cars . They are NOT worth what you spend anymore. By the time you get the damned thing paid off, it's ancient. I REEEALLY have zero idea how an average schmuck can afford a FULL size SUV or pick up truck?? Told my Wife that when I get MY next vehicle, it will be used.

I know a lot of people are really into the "latest thing" tech wise but I believe car manufactures should make their new tech stuff compatable for the average joe financially. I mean....we bought a middle of the road package for a small SUV but I feel like I just bought a BMW or something.

And did you guys know all new vehicles are doing away with CD players? I knew that coming but I thought it'd be another 5 to 10 years.
