I can’t wait to get a new car because some of the new features look really tempting, but are they really worth it? Cars today can come equipped with Television, GPS, Voice Activated Controls, and many other features! All of the extra features are more of a luxury and don’t really help you drive a car….but it’s still cool lol. But is it really worth paying hundreds of dollars every year for a top notch GPS system if you can just get a cheaper model or a free one on your phone? I mean if I was millionaire and I made that kind of money, sure, why not? However, I am just a college student without a steady cash flow.
Is it really worth buying a enterainment center that includes television and dvd access, even if you have children? When I was younger I would either read about in the car, stare out the window and watch the world, or fall asleep! I really think the dvd and television systems in cars are quite useless now that iPads and iPhones provide so much entertainment which is ten times more interactive than a DVD!
And what about the voice command systems? Let me just say, they aren’t perfect! You have to train it, which isn’t really a big deal because it is adapitve, but still. Even after you train it I guareentee you will still have to say things 2 or 3 times just to do something like change the song. That’s not really a big deal, but if I’m having a crappy day, i’m not really going to want to repeat myself.
Honestly, if you have an iPhone or another type of smart phone, you don’t need half the features that come with the new cars…save your money :)
