Did you hear the story about the brake job that wasn’t quite right? The mechanic didn’t have the updated software and had to call a friend for help. Meanwhile, the customer waited three more days … That customer used to be able to fix his own brakes, btw. The whole ABS bit has tossed him out of his league, not to mention all of the other computerization that’s now used to keep cars running smoothly. Vehicles aren’t what they used to be. Not by a long shot. Even a simple brake-line leak can’t be fixed by the people who used to be able to save themselves some cash by fixing it at home. Even if they invested in the technology they’d need, updating the software would be necessary. Who has time for that?
