Reminds me of that scene from Fight Club. Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one. Woman on plane: Are there a lot of the kinds of accidents? Narrator: You wouldn't believe. Woman: Which car company do you work for? Narrator: A major one.

There is a reason why the mitsubishi mirage has continually had positive upwards sales despite being a subcompact car and being cheaply made. Simply the fact that it is so cheap and easy to maintain without all the over complicated technology and voided warranties present. Most manufacturers don't realize that many people don't want, need, or use most of this extra technology and just want a affordable, basic car that they can fix or can take to their trusted mechanic. As cars become more expensive and ridiculous to maintain, expect another crash in the car market as more people keep their more reliable older cars or stick with simpler cars like the mirage.

Why do I need all these so called safety items? I can back my car up just fine, I stay in my lane and know where I am going. Only the braking computer seems useful and worth the money. I personally think driving standards are dumbed down enough.

If manufacturers force you to go to their dealers for repairs they have even less incentive to build reliable products, they might even have an incentive to build less reliable products.

Totally with you Scott. But on the other hand, I have not had good luck with independent auto shops either, For sure there are good ones out there, but the couple of times I had to use them ... I got scammed. So now I only buy the most reliable Japanese cars that don't really need much repair.

"Right to Repair" is one thing for most industries, I support it, and so would do so in automotive also. I have to think, though, that when it comes to cars and carmakers, and all the regulations and responsibility for, oh, idk, people's lives, that when it comes to safety issues they need to proceed with extreme caution and decide things based on zero tolerances for error. $1000 and yearly membership, at least, would help sort out, less honest or responsible than you, back yard 'mechanics' from making claims to get info. Anyway, $50 one time use is only 20 uses to make it $1000. If all the makers charged that up front to registered shops it is no different than hordes of businesses in many industries that have industry associated subscription costs for what they do, and a normal cost of doing business... which they deserve. They have to administer it all globally to different local laws, staff a call center, and deal with lawsuits independent mechanics will inevitably cost them. Its big, complex business and dealers are independent businesses, they deserve the support of the manufacturer. And the manufacturer wants to give them as little of their profit as they can get away with, creating repair biz for them helps facilitate that. Peace

Car dealers have too much power and legal protections. They even prevent Tesla from selling cars in some states because they are afraid of people buying cars online. Crooks.

Tesla cars will heat their battery to 55 deg C to allow faster charging. This was added in a recent OTA software update. They do it if you have a Tesla Supercharger as your destination in your nav system. Heating starts 10-15 min before arrival.

Legend has it, Scotty kilmer is part man part machine, as a viewer saw him at the baseball stadium urinals, then as the viewer went past the urinal sk was at there was what looked like brake fluid dot 5.1, he was surprised as he expected dot 3, as sk is no longer a show room model and has turned the tacho fully at least once, I guess with all the YouTube money, he can afford to go for a upgrade to this side of the millennium, old body new circa 2018 parts with in,

The heated battery story is a bit fishy. Batteries already get really hot when fast charging to the point the cooling system is used to cool them down and keep them safe. Heating the packs also happens in some brands in cold weather to keep them performing at their best but durn use they create enough heat to not need constant heating even in really cold weather.

One reason I won't ever buy a new or newer vehicle. I don't need all the nanny things they have in vehicles now days. If I had the money I buy a 70s ford pickup and rebuild it. No electronics to worry about simple and easy to fix. Plus can't get a manual transmission no more in new trucks now days.

Your property is your property and you have a RIGHT to repair or modify your property as us see fit. Sure, manufactures have a right to avoid responsibility if modifications or repairs go pair shaped, but NOT if they fix a design flaw and were ESSENTIAL to the practical use of the item. Repair is noble!

That wasn't totally predictable. Lets have parts made in a country where they are known to cut corners...have software written in a country where they are known to cut corners..so we can save money. Oh...yeah..and everything will work out...right? Ask the hundreds of dead people if they are ok with losing their lives so some c-level jerk off can have more money in their pocket.
