quote: I find that all car review outlets hate infotainment tech of ANY type. Car and Driver b!tched for years about BMW's iDrive. When I had the opportunity to use it in a friends 335i, the first thing out of his mouth was that if you can use a mouse, you can use iDrive. And he was correct, iDrive is so easy to use you'd HAVE to be an idiot to not be able to use it. I honestly think these rags are reviewed/written by old men that either just generally don't like or can't figure out tech and place that bias on every car with advanced features.

quote: I don't want a bunch of stodgy old farts that still don't know how to set the clock in their cars or add a radio preset judging modern tech.
quote: I just don't like that CR's has impugned Fords reliability because of their dislike of MyTouch.
quote: this information comes from their surveyed readers.
quote: Look I don't know what I'm conflating, but when a car buyer hears that a brand has poor reliability, it invokes images of being stranded on the side of the road or always having a car in the shop for one problem or another. Am I alone in thinking this?
