YCC (your concept car)

while i was at first impressed that volvo had designed a car based on women-specific needs, i am now offended by the car.

only a mechanic can open the hood. what a stupid fucking feature to implement! sure, it's cool that the car sends a signal to your mechanic when it needs maintenance, but what good does that do you if you're in the middle of the fucking desert with a broken belt?!

"the designers didn't envision doing much engine work themselves," so they made it impossible for anyone to perform any maintenance on the car whatsoever. that sounds like a design for ripping women off.

fuck that.

also, while gull wing doors look cool, i doubt they would be very practical in a crowded parking lot. it ought to have those lamborgini(?) doors that come out a little and then pivot up instead.

well that's rather disappointing...the woman didn't tell us about that.

sounds like the engineers could have better spent their time trying to make their new volvo ecological rather than sexist

totally never thought about the doors. you're completely right. they look cool, but they're fuckin far from practical.

car manufacturers have been talking for a while about closing the hood on cars...i don't really like the idea myself. they should make cars so that you never need to, not just so that you can't.

once you close the hood permanently you open the door for totally screwing people over at the mechanics. things you could do at home in a few minutes with a few bucks worth of parts are going to cost you $30 in labor alone.

and, sure, it's cool that hoodlums won't be able to steal your fucking battery when you're parked in the ghetto, but what are you gonna do when you car overheats in the summer time? pay $200 to have it towed to your mechanic's so he can pour a gallon of water into it for you? sheesh!

Re: yeah
yeah i just had to take my car to get worked on and it cost $500 and just think if it was something i could have done myself i would have saved a lot of money but instead they have to make parts that use tools that you can only get if you are a dealer.
