Really. They learned their lesson in the 70s, when people were able to keep their dinosaur cars on the road with wire and tape. Then they jacked up fuel prices, to get those old cars off the road. Today we are seeing the same cycle. This time they came right out and exposed their plot with "Cash for Clunkers." The cars coming out now are not as rugged or reliable as the cars produced up through 2008, and with "On Star" type devices, they can take control of your car at any time. People with unreliable, little plastic cars are much easier to control than people with rugged, cross-country vehicles that they can repair themselves. (Imagine, trying to boss around someone who owns an old pickup truck and a shotgun.) Something to think about.
