If your terrified of a screen going blank you probably shouldn't buy a new car.
Stick to anolog. Its a digital age and every vehicle has these potential issues.
Come to think of it, even old cars might have a check engine light or limp mode happen.. maybe the bus is better.
Actually I saw a bus being towed today on my way to work.. a cart. A cart is best.
You being rude and sarcastic here was totally uncalled for, obviously it is your prerogative but still... I totally agree with
, I am actually in almost an exact situation. I have a 2008 Prius and have been researching PacHy for months now and almost ready to buy it, but these constant complaints are putting me over the edge to not do it. Yes, you are absolutely right that it is a car and problems/check engine lights do come up, but the concern is for that to happen on a brand new car. Isn't that something to worry about when you are buying a 40K+ new car?
And yes, I am sure these may be a small sample size to write off the brand entirely, but some of the issues posted here are outright dangerous while many of the are just "annoyances". I don't mind a screen going blank, but the more common problems I am seeing are the car stalling, sliding door coming off etc.. How the f does the door fall off? If you are not concerned about the door coming off, then you're living in denial. You may be fortunate it hasn't happened to you, but by now I have seen it more than 5 times just on this forum. That is a huge safety issue.
Having said all that, I am still super thrilled to buy one (may be this weekend or next week), but the fact that I am not a 100% convinced, I am a little hesitant.
And yeah, I have had cars for about 20 years now and never ever had to go to the shop for an "issue" except, an oil change and tire replacements. That's what reliability means, not a freakin' brand new car stalling in the middle of no where, with little kids in tow. That is a HUGE concern before buying
