There are a few of us, mostly old f#*&#ts, who remember when opening
the hood of our car didn’t cause us to stumble off dazed and defeated.
In those days we could see down past the engine to the ground.
Now…it’s impossible; a terrible confusion exists beneath that
thin bit of sheet metal. And see the ground?! Not without moving the car.
Here’s the question to you. Is your car too complex? And here comes
the response. It’s a loud…YES! My answer is; it’s not
too complex as long as everything works.
At Norman Taylor & Associates we talk to dozens of people with very
bad cars every day. Most of them say the same thing; “it’s
too darn complex! There are too many gadgets and gizmos.
And don’t get me started talking about computers and software: millions
of bits and bytes of computer code – hardware and software. There
are endless opportunities for something to go wrong. It shouldn’t
be so easy to become another Lemon Law statistic.
I am very interested in what you think about whether the modern car or
truck is too complex. There’s a more to say on this topic. Look
for additional posts soon.
