Yes. Well said. Specific condions optimized desgns and few-to-none will buy it outside of those forced-to-oprate conditions.
Vehicle sexiness: sells.
New woo-tech features: sells.
Perceived upgraded safety: sells.
Real Practicality, and long-life usability, sales, not-so-much. By-by to too many previous names.
Many times now in the past a manufacture, or manufacturing conglomerate engineering studies designed 500,000 mile life cars.
Always sales& marketing nixed right off the bat. Long-term stocks-investors (upper management) nixed too.
Then later progressive-forwarders nixed as would not have the latest/greatest emissions reducing; and/or safety “savings” technology.
So . . . the trick of it is to take what is offered up; over-maintain it and get your 300,000-500,000 mile life-in mechanical services. 10 year life in service as a minimum.
Ha! Too many of us doing that so then more will-age/will-fail drive-you-nuts electronic systems were incorporated. Expanding out use of road salts to churn the ownership’s turn-over to their $$,$$$ standards.
Learn to drive with lots of failures lights and part, still acceptable doo-dads, performances.
Use the best Nordic rust prevention annual cleanings, preservings on intent found vehicles.
Only let a total wreck pry your chosen preserved out of your cold dead hands. Whine. By-by to my selected out 1-in-a-thousand; 99 Honda CRV. On to the bought new, well preserved Hyundai Tucson. (with the gone super tweaky all electronic ATC climate control system)
So you just think our now ramped-up, rush-rush frenzied, tech-distracted wild drivers now have not be produced, eh?
