Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Savvy asks: I want to get a newish car with reliable strong engine, quiet drive, somewhat cushy interior, and none of the NWO extras our Outback has. I like a heavier vehicle. Is that still available? Should I look for a used car with low mileage? Currently I drive a 2007 4runner with over 114k miles.
My reply: The first recommend that comes to mind is a new or recent-model Dodge Charger or Chrysler 300 (same basic car; the 300 is supposedly more “luxurious” but that’s mostly in terms of seat/dash covers, materials and trim). Both of these haven’t been updated since about ten years ago and that means they haven’t got most of the NWO equipment – including the various driver “assists” – that cars designed within the past two or three years almost all come standard with.
In general terms, if you go back to about 2015 and prior, you’ll be able to avoid the “assists” in almost car you look at, except for higher-end cars.
I’ve been drooling over a low-miles ’83 Oldsmobile that has no NWO “extras” at all! Just a seatbelt buzzer – and it goes off after a few seconds. My kind of ride!
