I’m sure we’ve all at some point watched online car reviews. I know I do. I came across this guy a couple of weeks ago and just about watched everything he’s done. His videos are very well done I would even say it rivals MT and others.

Any way as some here know I’m not into cars with a lot of technology and these are some really good reason why.

Adjusted for inflation, you get a lot more car for your money these days than ever before. More performance, more safety, lower emissions, higher MPG at any given HP level, etc.

Adjust those for inflation, too. And add to that the fact that warranties are longer than they were in the '60s and '70s, and cars tend to break less/last longer now, too overall. My Chevy Volt is only 5 years old and like new, and I fully expect it to be serviceable at 300k miles.
