This is going to be interesting how it will proceed.

If the centre console of the car is built in and non removable, and you are not told before hadn't very clearly "by buying this car you are giving us your data", without any direct op-out option, this is going to be a nightmare legal wise in many countries.

Especially how it will be related to second hand car ownership. Will the seller have to notify the buyer that the manufacturer will still follow the car information and invade their privacy without them having the option to opt-out? Will you lose car features by being opt-out?

I can definitely see someone buying a car and then throwing a lawsuit at the manufacturer for invading their privacy without consent, as a car is not a simple "if you don't like it, don't buy it" option.

lol we are all gold mine fields because data has value, and because data is so unique, it will be harvested/mined for profits and sold to the highest bidder. Welcome to economics/commerce of the 21st century . You are the product and you will be bought and sold.

No surprise really that larger vehicles lead in sales these days. I wouldn't buy a car that wasn't sporty.

Smaller cars were by far more popular in the 90s, and a big reason why those jap cars sold well.

You do know more than econoboxes and cheap sports cars came out of Japan in the 90s, right? Also you're comparing an entry level car to a luxury brand car. A 90s Buick might be the same price used as a Civic from the same era is now, but that's for a reason. A better comparison there would be a Lexus/Infiniti to the Buick, or a Cavalier/Prizm to the Civic.

There were TONS of 90's era Japanese cars that dominated as sports cars. The biggest problem is America got the short end of this stick and got a bunch of **** compared to what was sold over there, but there is still a bunch of good 90's cars you can find/swap/import now. Especially European 90's cars were awesome as well.

Toyota Supra/MR2
Nissan 240sx/300zx/R32
Mazda RX7
Subaru Impreza 92-00
Mitsubishi Eclipse/3000GT
Honda Prelude/S2000
Lexus IS300(yes it's early 02 not 90s)
Infiniti G20

This is just a small list there are tons more.

Lol basically what I plan on doing. It's funny, I thought I was alone on this but I've been hearing this exact line from so many people from all sorts of walks of life for a while now. There's a huge chunk of people who just don't wanna get on board these new connected car tablet PC in your dash data mining ultra safe cocoons that drive themselves.

The 90's cars basically reached the pinnacle of the internal combustion tech as it relates to reliability, everything after that has been bloat and stuff to make things more mindless not really exponential advancements in capability/range/etc. Even the most base model car today is more loaded than the most luxurious car from 20 years ago.

GM died when the last B-Body rolled off the line. They should have died in 08. Today other than their trucks or their flagship sports cars they suck, they tried to play the Japanese at their own game and they lost. Ever see a Chevy Lumina on the road still? Didn't think so, but 1990's Honda's are still everywhere. What GM cars do you still see from that era on the road? B-Bodies, Caprices, wagons and trucks. Consequently all cars that are basically trucks, and what is the only thing that GM makes today that's worth anything? Trucks. GM should have stuck to what they were good at, their trucks are good today because it's essentially them making exactly what they have always made, full size V8, turbohydramatic, FR layout body on frame. I picked up a 1989 Chevrolet Caprice in 2008 and drove that for 3/4 of the year and I had a Tercel to use as a winter beater. That was my combo until very recently, never owned a vehicle from the 2000's and even as a GM fan I would never dream of owning anything new GM puts out besides maybe their trucks, everything else they make just sucks.

You obviously never heard of the Ford Mustang Trans Am Privateer Special. A factory built Trans Am racer that anyone could buy. It cost around $5700.

Well this is a good reason to never buy another GM product or any other new car. I already can't stand advertisements/tracking on something I paid for. Sorry I'll vote with my wallet like I always do.
