Enjoy being CAGED in communism, /n/igger.
>continues to drive 40 year old carsshit your pants about it
>>25919804all this means is the market will be corrected soon. The world can't get along with out cars because we do not have a better alternative yet.
>>25919804>auto manufacturers already lose money on cash price of cars, only make money when someone takes out a loanyou are a know nothing fucking idiot. dealers BUY their inventory from the MANUFACTURER, the mfg gets it's money regardless and up front. the DEALER is the one who profits off of financing because they get KICKBACKS from whatever banks they partner with for selling loans (Because then obviously the bank profits from your interest), and usually the they partner with their own brands loan shop unless they're a used/multi brand dealer. dealers DON'T just flat out lose money on a cash sale on on the principal of it being cash alone, they lose on EXTRA money from the bank. the only way they lose money on just the sale itself is if no one wants it and they just want to be rid of it, then they might sell it at a loss. but otherwise no you literally couldn't be more wrong.
>>25919935Exactly right, the real problem here isn't the car manufacturers, its the car dealers.Allow direct sales to lower prices. Heavily regulate service to prevent abuse. Enshrine the Right to Repair in Law.
>>25919935100% unadulterated cope
honestly this is a good thing. imagine wanting modern car manufacturers to succeed. If they dont make things people want, they can all die.

cars will never go away, mass ev will never be viable, blackpillers face the wall first.
>>25920317nobody is talking about EVs. Fuck new cars regardless of drivetrain.
>>25920317Blackpill is a stage people need to go through.
>>25919804It’s simple to say that car manufacturers have gotten too big. Before governments started propping up their respective automotive industries it used to be that ever country had their own car brand or two operating in that specific area, since cars are heavy and hard to transport. All of those big concerns will fall within the next couple of decades and new blood will either buy up the salvage or create new companies outright.
>>25920323Dilate, faggot /n/igger.
>>25920402I'm not talking about that either retard. Fuck /n/.
>>25920317>mass ev will never be viable>says increasingly nervous man for the 300th time this year
>>25919804>inefficient way to travelWhy, then, do we see slave ships and the trains to Auschwitz as inhuman and cruel? Why aren't they being congratulated on efficient transportation?
im going to be honest. i really dont understand how this board has managed to politicize good public transit and civil engineering in cities. I dont understand how a city being easier to walk around and move without a car is somehow impeding on the ability to own cars. I live in an actual big american city and I just think its totally unacceptable and stupid that you still need a car here when the distances between things are so low. WHat would be a 20 minute drive in the country distance wise is an hour+ one here in the city. Its just retarded. I like cars and I've been on /o/ for over ten years and I really dont understand these kinds of discussions at all.
>>25919804maybe im an idiot or something, but i have no fucking clue wtf the graph is meant to indicate or represent.
>>25920303Also the nanny government can fuck off with some of its safety regulations that just add to expenses. Backup cameras shouldn't be mandatory.
>>25920867not only should backup cameras be mandatory, surround cameras should be mandatorybumpers should be optional
