Just sitting here reading the new threads on the forum, and seeing lots of threads where members have problems with all sorts of stuff on the newer Mercedes models. Are cars getting too complicated? I am reading about things like command, that seems so complicated that there are lots of questions about it. Is it really an asset if its so complicated and fragile that folks cant work it from the instructions? There are all sorts of buttons to do this and that where on the older cars you do it manually. Like I unlock my door with a key, just put it in the lock and turn it. its magic! No fancy electronic gizmos, no remote this and that, and about the only electric thing in the car is the radio, oh and the windows, and if i could i would go back to winders. They dont let you down in the middle of a journey. There are even cars with a remote to operate the radio now? how lazy can you get? It mainly seems to be electrical problems that cars have, and i suppose that while manufacturers keep stuffing as many new gadgets into a car as they can, and still build them to an accountants budget, thats the way it will stay. Yes i like some modern advances, but lots of the toys on cars now seem to be just that...toys. I did consider recently purchasing a newer car as they should really be an advance on the older models.. but from what i read here and other places, and from my own history, they arent. So what do you think, are cars getting to complicated now, or not?
