Exception handling isn't that different.
Java unchecked exceptions operate basically the same was as C#/.Net extensions. You catch them where you want in the call stack or it bubbles all the top.
People don't like checked exceptions because your code is filled with documentation about the types of problems it can have. Of course the alternative is you end up with catch Exception(e) code at boundaries which has its own problems.

125,000 miles would be considered a serious quality defect with a traditional auto. If memory serves me right, most recent example was BMW nikasil engine block issue.
Owners of early 2000s Dodge Caravans and Ford Windstars might disagree. Plenty got less than 100,000 before developing issues that cost more to repair than the value of the vehicle.
We recently had an issue where a union state and a right to work state built a bridge across a river to each other. The union state mandated that all contractors be union shops.

A better comparison would be a secret union of all tech workers that required that none of its employees take work with Apple until they raised their entry level salaries for engineers to 500k per year out of desperation.
Ignoring the secret part... Isn't that the definition of a strike? People refusing work until the hiring company caves to work policies or salaries?
