I generally drive old stuff. No car payments and I can fix it up like I want. However, I just got back from another 2000 mile trip. Rather than use my Cadillac that gets 13 mpg, with a tail wind, I rented a Nissan Altima. Not a bad little car and it gets great fuel mileage. I got nearly 39 mpg down and back except for around Nashville. Unlike the Kia I rented last time, the seats didn't feel like they were made from bricks. Alas, it has all the nanny systems the car makers are adding. Backup camera that I never looked at as I was looking around myself backing up. Blind spot warning lights. Anytime someone was near me, a light would light up. Try to change lanes and it would blonk fast and beep. Try to slide in behind another car in congested traffic and not only did it beep in an insulting manner, the steering wheel would shake. Automatic braking too. We stayed in a beach front condo in Florida and to leave, you drive up to the gate and let it open. Fine. Except the car would STOP before I got over the darned sensor. Fortunately, the owners manual was still in it and I found out how to reduce the sensitivity. Every single time I'd go to get in it, I'd pull the fob out. No key, just push on the brake and push a button. No getting out while it's in drive either. You have to stop, put it in park and release the brake pedal. I don't know what worries me more. The manufacturers putting these on a car or people still managing to hurt themselves with all these "safety" features and what will be next.
