Doddery - astute as ever - flagged in-car (in-truck, actually..) safety the other day
Gave me flashbacks about buying the Honda in Auckland last year.
It honestly didn't occur to me that cars built in the last 10 years wouldn't have ABS or airbags.
But they're out there.
Mostly in Henderson
Lots of of them.
So the Must Have criteria went from "Younger than 8 years, less than $12k, fewer than 8k a year" to all that plus "and ABS and Airbags"
But the best sales pitch to compensate for the lack of one or both was:
"Well, if you drive safely and don't have any accidents, you don't need them"
Noooo, I don't really think so.....
