I know what cars are.

Does it sound like the author suggested that people in other countries are less worried about whether or not their cars happen to work that day?
Not much to go on here... context is everything.

Reminds me, though, waaay back in the day when Judge Wapner ruled People's Court, a ligament (I know, litigant) bought an OLD VW van from a private party and something went wrong on it; the guy sued and via Wapner HE WON! That was how long ago and I'm still furious about that bone-headed decision.
