Notice we don't fix things anymore. They are either too expensive or too complicated to repair. Our cars are trouble prone, but fairly easy to repair...sort of.
Can you imagine trying to repair a 2014 Mercedes, Porsche, or BMW (or any new car) when it's 10 or 15 years old?
By 10 years old any failure of the many computer controlled system will cost more than the car is worth.
Today we'll throw away old TVs, receivers, microwaves, etc.
Tomorrow we'll throw away (recycle) older cars.
I don't mind taking things apart to fix them. It's the putting-them-back-together part that I find hard.
