Are These Modern Cars Any Good?

Posted on May 22 2018 - 11:44am by Brian Williams

It goes without saying that modern cars are just completely different to how they used to be. Think back to one of the first proper cars ever invented. One with a roof, window, doors, tyres etc. All it was about then was making sure the car moved, looked good, and was affordable for the upper class only. But now look at it. Modern cars are all about technology, and the essentials such as the motor and the way in which it runs has sort of been forgotten about. Supercars and muscle cars are perhaps the only ones that have stayed strong in making sure the engine and the sound is the main focus. The less tech, the more power it has. Supercars are an exception. Boy do they focus on the engine, but they use technology to do so. So, the question we’re asking today is, are these modern cars actually any good? Well, let’s explore.

Breakdown Rate

If you own a modern car, maybe even one that’s just a few years old, you’ll know just how annoying it is when they break. Not only is it annoying when they break, but the buildup to them breaking can often be worse. You’ll hear a dodgy sound that just seems to be getting louder and louder over the course of a few weeks, until all of the sudden the car won’t start! Auto Repair can be expensive if you get it done by the wrong person. A lot of garages are actually out to rip people off, the more money they can make, the happier they’re going to be. So always make sure you’re choosing a respectable garage who is going to get the job done properly for you! If you want to reduce your chance of being part of the breakdown rate figure, make sure your car is serviced as and when it should be, and always make sure you’re driving in a sensible and safe manner to keep the car in the best condition that you possible can.


Generally speaking, the more expensive the car, the better it is. But we can argue this and say this isn’t always the case. The price doesn’t mean anything, it’s about how it’s made, and what you’re getting for the price you pay. It’s also down to luck. You can buy a second hand old car that costs a thousand, and it’ll last you years due to the way the owners have driven it. You can get a newish car costing thousands, and it could break a few months down the line because of how the previous owner used it. If you want the best value for money, you’re best off getting a brand new, yet economical car, or getting one that’s older, but one you’re sure will do everything you need it to do.

Tech Overload

This is the problem that a lot of cars seem to be having. They’re now so full of tech, that people are having more problems than they would if it were a car not full of tech! The best cars are the ones that have all the modern day features, but like to stick to the normality of a car, rather than overloading it.
