I remember a time when transmissions had Shifters and/or cables,.......instead of wires and circuit boards.

There is just no reason for all this computer complexity on these newer vehicles.

With all these computer controls, it keeps us weekend warriors/shade tree mechanics from working on our vechiles. When I was in high school (class of '72) I had a '65 Dodge and when I opened the hood you could see the engine!!

Started working at Chrysler in 75 , got out in 07, got to the point where even the mechanics couldn't take training fast enough to keep on top of the changes.
Owned a 68 Coronet 426 4spd , one of 117 built, nothing on the car that couldn't be fixed in your driveway.

Well, I worked flat rate in a Ford Dealership in the 60's. the only thing cars in that day were good for is horsepower. Once you got them going, you couldn't steer them or stop them. They were riddled with rattles, squeaks and leaks. Required a tune up every 10k at best. Flat tires were the norm. I can go on and on.
Half of them cratered just driving them from the rail terminal to the dealership. In truth, they were simply high powered piles of junk until the Japanese and Ralph Nader came along and forced the NA Manufactures to make a decent, roadworthy and safe product. You can't tell me they were better than today's product. I have the missing skin from my knuckles to prove it.
Having said that, the Autos built in NA today are a pleasure to drive and compare with anything the rest of the world has to offer. Thanks to global competition!!!!!

So they have a problem where the car might shift into N while starting and roll into something - did they forget to install parking brakes on them?
