Awesome list :-)
> Having to pull the choke every time you turn off the engine or risk not being able to start it again? No thanks.
(never quite understood how that worked, I thought it was used for *starting* it, interesting)
> All the fun-filled mornings spent with the family pushing your car until it started? No thanks.
(check, not that often, but been there)
> Brakes on your car suddenly failing for no reason when you're going down the highway? (yes this actually happened to me) No thanks.
(scary, never faced that one)
> Bursting radiators, torn up drive belts, worn clutch discs? I think I'll pass on those as well.
(check, more than once)
> And not to mention if you got in an accident even at relatively low speed you were literally dead meat.
(check, twice; low speed, with 3-point seatbelt on, still heavily bruised)
What to add there? Frequent tire punctures? Having to "de-carb" your carburator at least every 6 months? Frequent brunt light bulbs?
