Quality versus Technology

Today’s technology is working both for the auto industry and against the auto industry. There are so many new functions, when it comes to the infotainment systems, that delivery of your new or used car can be a long process. It may be hard trying to understand all the options in such a short time. This can create both a like and possibly a dislike for the car.

What really makes matters worse is that this is how a lot of so called “auto writers” rate new cars and in turn create doubt for consumers looking to buy a really good car. Some potential buyers may shy away from the perfect vehicle for them because of a ridiculous hang up with the new technology based on a survey. Take time to use the system before and then again after your test drive. If it’s too hard to understand then choose a different trim level with less tech or take time to go back for a refresher on that particular system.

Cars are getting more and more reliable with even more options for electronics so it’s off to the races to see how much technology can be crammed into that new car. More so now than ever before it is important to make sure you fully understand the operation of all this tech when you take delivery rather than ending up needing a certain function performed and trying to figure it out while you’re driving.

Bottom line is, you may need to learn some new technology the next time you buy a car so you don’t let the ease of technical operation ratings keep you from driving and buying that quality car, truck, or SUV you’ve always wanted.
