It seems that these days it’s almost impossible to buy a car without lots of useless toys inside.
[Background: I grew up with a 1984 Chevy Cavalier with NO options]
For example (and this is what brought up the idea), what purpose is serves by the remote keyless entry system. it’s basically a remote control for the door locks. If I’m walking towards the car anyway, how much time/labour am I saving by pressing that little button rather than inserting and turning the key? So why is it practically a standard feature on even low-end cars like the Civic, Corrola and Cavalier? Does it do any good?
Some things I can understand. Rear defrost, power steering, and for the really decadent, air conditioning, I guess; these serve a function [even if the car comes with a fan and vents].
Well, rather than elaborate more, I submit it to the masses.
