WHat tech? Most of it is INCREDIBLY annoying. Relentless safety nannies beeping at you for no apparent reason, screens instead of knobs, it is slower to do everything than it used to be. What tech?

I'll take a reverse camera, that's it, the rest can go fuck itself and does nothing but shit me to tears.

Right on! If you can’t stay in your lane why are you even driving!?!? I hate that crap jerking the wheel when I’m moving through traffic.

I’m convinced most of this tech is just to enable people to feel safer texting and has only caused more accidents lol

And don’t get me started on navigating touch screen menus while driving in traffic is better than pushing a single button on a old school dashboard.

Well you are correct - if your car is jerking you around - that would be annoying. However, if your car is jerking you around, maybe you should learn to stay in your lane.....

I've had modern cars brake mid intersection because the cars crossing through confuse it and it thinks there is going to be a collision. How is this garbage even allowed?

It's more than ridiculous "safety" nannies though, all the ridiculous settings defaulting to ...well ... the default, makes sharing a car with someone a fucking chore. Just leave everything where i fucking well left it. It's the applefication of the world, automating everything just to shit me to tears. Leave me alone.

Even google maps fucking does it. I PURPOSELY select a route to take some back roads last week when renting a stang, and maps RELENTLESSLY kept defaulting to the highway. YOU ASKED ME WHICH MOTHER FUCKING OPTION I WANTED AND I SEL:ECTED THE SLOWER ROUTE ... so just fucking well go the way i chose.

Fuck.

I am with the "who cares about tech" gang

When I order my cars I never opt for the tech stuff

so my thing for newer cars is not about the tech

I prefer newer cars because of the way they drive, they are tight and crisp and everything works the way it was engineered to.

That for me makes for a more enjoyable drive, which is ultimately what I really care about.
