The Car I Drive

The car I drive places me in the “I love driving” camp. Although I’m pleased with all the electronic driver’s aids I currently enjoy in my car and look forward to even smarter self-driving cars, I find I want to be at the wheel, shift the gears and nail the throttle.

But, what about the Future? Innovation is exciting and global, as new technology awaits every day on suspension, fuel delivery, serviceability, and a thousand other auto elements.

Well, whether cars are human-piloted or robot-driven I predict that stormy weather events will intrude, deer will get no smarter and many of our cars will need some collision repairs. So, no matter what the innovation, cars will need to be capably repaired by an autobody shop. Make sure they are manufacturer certified to do the work.
