Re: old technology

Problem with this new tech is that a cheap car can quickly become uneconomic to repair if the electronics start to play up "a perfectly good car will fail a mot if a dash light is on" on the other hand someone with a bit of know how can pick up one that may only need a cheap sensor change for next to nowt. They say a Morris Minor is the cheapest car to run, cheap classic insurance 40 mpg no road tax if made before Jan 1973, and no MOT if before 1960 it may cast 3000+ for a good one but you are likely to make money over the years rather than loos it. But it ain't fast and all those grease nipples are a pain, though parts are cheap and they are easy to work on and fix.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
