Make of car: Hyundai Age: 44<br>Model of car: XG300 Sex: M<br>Engine capacity (CC): 3000<p>1. What new engine technologies would you be interested to find out more about?<br>Hybrids <p>2. Do you think engines powered by fuel alternatives (eg. Fuel cells, Hybrids, Hydrogen) are feasible?<br>-Yes but we are not there yet technologically. Hybrids have to cost the same as normal cars and be totally indistinguishable in terms of driving experience for them to be desirable.<p>3. Do you think you will buy a car powered by alternative engines?<p><br>-No, because the technology is not field tested. There are a lot of Hybrids on the road, but what will their long term durability be? <p>4. Which of these computerized car interfaces are you aware of?<br>-BMWs I-drive -Mercedes Command -Audis MMI<br>I've looked at all three and HATE all three. Knobs and switches please. I should not have to divert my eyes from the road to scroll through several screens to change the fan speed on the air conditioner.<p>5. What do you feel about cars being increasingly technologically advanced?<p>-Im comfortable with it <p>6. Do the pollution cars make influence your view on buying cars?<p>No because the notion that pollution is car-based is a fallacy. All data shows that heavy industry is the main culprit for pollution NOT cars.<p>7. What do you think is lacking in the safety of cars today?<br>not much but ABS and front and curtain airbags should be mandated by law<p>8. What are some of the problems you encounter in current computerized car interfaces?<br>they do not offer any ease of function over knobs, levers, and switches. Computerized interfaces should make the car easier to operate not more difficult. The Germans have totally screwed this up.<p>9. What are the features you would like to see in future cars?<br>stiffer structures with lower weight<p>10. What distraction do you encounter most when driving?<p>the swerving of idiots who drive with one hand on the wheel and the other holding the cell phone while they talk oblivious to traffic.
