I have a car, and I take no special pride in it. If it gets me from point A to point B I am happy.
I hear and see commercials with cars taking tight curves and driving empty city blocks. Do you car lovers really care about horsepower? How fast a car can take a turn? How fast it can get from 0-60?
Now, I’m not referring to highway MPG, four-wheel drive, back-up camera, etc. Those things I can understand people caring about, whether economically- or safety-conscious.
But this other stuff that shows off the strength and speed of the car…the power. The maneuverability. In today’s world, at least where I live, you’re going to be stuck in traffic much more often than you’re going to be tearing up the Autobahn. I just can’t imagine someone buying a car for these “superficial” reasons. I’d like to hear from people who actually pay attention to these kinds of advertisements and understand why these items matter to you, especially given the multiplying dangers of the road these days (texting while driving, etc.)
