This new onstar/internet package is not even close to the old one....in fact, the old one is not even supported anymore. People demand more from their vehicles now and that is driving the market. If a car maker charges $500 more for a certain popular paint color, is that greed? No one is forcing you to buy a vehicle.
No, but you're in for a real awakening if you try living without one anywhere other than an urban area; add to that the used market was purposefully gutted by cash for clunkers, of which it never truly recovered, and toss on some inflation and the whole market is a shit show.
Yep, be a smart consumer and buy what you want, not what other's want to sell you.
That only works so long; you know what I can't stand? Being pushed towards small displacement turbo'd engines in trucks, oh and electric vehicles. I don't want these things, and you know what I can do? Stick my opinion up my arse, because apparently that's what that market wants- or maybe it's required to meet standards imposed by our political class.
We don't have a free market anymore, and the opinion of the consumer only goes so far.
