I've got third row seating... if you don't mind being the body in the trunk. Which can be quite fun if you're consenting.

Flash Memory Wear Killing Older Tesla's Due to Excessive Data Logging: Report

https://www.tomshardware.com/news/flash-memory-wear-killing-older-teslas-due-to-excessive-data-logging-report

"Because a Tesla is highly dependent on its electronics, once the flash memory in a Teslabs infotainment unit goes bad, it essentially bricks the entire car."

This apparently only applies to version 1 MCU's.

...and of course this is what Ford II would call "progress".

All cars are basically just rolling computers these days, but some more than others.

The rental that I drove this week had way more controls on it than I cared for. Too many screens, too many buttons, and that's from someone who *likes* technology. The lane-keeping software was LITERALLY poking me in the ass when I drifted too far to either side of the lane.

I'm no fan of BMW's "twenty thousand dollar options package" approach, but I *like* that you can still order a car from them without all driver-assitance garbage. Not so with Subaru

Well then stop drifting in your lane. You make other people nuts with that. <GRIN>

@IGnatius T Foobar, I agree, so much electronics in machines that don't need half as much.

I have noticed that really hardcore microchipheads don't want microchips everywhere, they want microchips in places that make sense. It is hipster wannabes who want computers in every doorknob.
