    Have you ever been told that if you are having problems learning new technology that you should ask a 12 year old? It seems that a car dealership in Quincy, MA, has taken this to heart. Quirk Motors has hired 16-17 year old young adults to walk new car owners through all of the features of their new vehicles. They are paid $11/hr and must go through Ford Certified Training. Their grades are monitored and their hours are cut if their grades have fallen. The response to this has been overwhelmingly positive; in fact, there was one older gentleman who had initially resisted----"You're just a kid, what can you show me?"----and later thanked his consultant.

    How about just make cars without all this crap and make them affordable.

    I gave up on my wife vs. technology thing. She can learn how to do something and two days later draws a complete blank. Luckily we only live about 8 miles from the dealership so I just send her back there for retraining. (Poor salesman).

    This is the first car that I have ever had that has "all the bells and whistles" and I absolutely love it.

    It does take a while to get used to the LDW light, especially on the highway.

    My wifes car sends an email when it is due for service.
    Also sends an email if you accidentally push the panic button on the remote.
    The low tire light is good to have, as over the years she was able to get it checked out due to a minor leak.

    Bells and whistles are cool but I look at it as more crap that can go wrong.
