Maybe auto makers are just really pessimistic.

How come when something lights up on your dashboard, it's always bad? It's things like "Check engine" or "We're kind of about to break down" or "Seriously, how is this thing still running?"

I think they should balance the bad out with a few good messages. Things that say "Good driving!" or "Everything is working fine!" or "You smell nice today!"

Then I probably wouldn't say so many curses to my car.

You are a genius. An evil genius.

You could always have a happy car like mine. A friendly 'tink, tink,' as you get in. And a happy 'tink, tink' on your way out of it. So though it tried to kill you, you still feel very happy to be alive. :) Well you've had that pleasure. lol

What happened to the cars that talked? Growing up my friend's dad's car said "Good morning, Bud!" every morning. That would be nice.

I just had to get my damn car fixed (and it all started with the airbag light turning on, which basically is my car telling me it doesn't care if I live or die)... and $1,300 later, I am getting back in tip top shape. I would at least appreciate the offer of a cigarette after they screw me like that.
