I have to say, I disagree with him on every single one he says isn’t worthwhile. I have all these features on my car, and I wouldn’t get rid of any of them. Okay, so my semi-automatic gearbox I could do without, but I do use it. And I’ll grant him that traction control systems were much more primitive in 1998, but still. I know there are a lot of us who will agree with Mr. Clarkson’s assessment, but I think that traction control, heated seats, cruise control, parking sensors (and even cameras now), AND PASSENGER AIR BAGS, the whole lot of them are worth my money. Now today, these are all common items, but I still state that whether I’m speccing up a car online or shopping for a used one, I want the features.
