The increased complexity of the car will also result in 1) less ability for the owner to maintain the car (in terms of the ability to perform the work themselves & the increased cost for have repairs professionally & correctly performed) and 2) the cars will end up in the junkyard sooner.

Even if you look at the sales of the "new" mustang versus the 64/65 "new" mustang, the economic hardship was every bit a catastrophic as where we are today, meaning the buying power is the same, yet sales of the current mustang are a fraction of what was even by the auto industry as "the norm".

My meaning, IMHO, while there is much to like about the new gen mustang, there is a lot that is keeping people away from driving one home.

I don't think people much care about increased complexity but I will agree that I am not sold on the overall looks or packages.

Id like to see a little more aggression in the form of a decent spoiler, maybe a hood scoop and some stripes.
