I do partially agree that things should not be made too complex for reliability. Like the ultra luxurious AC system on some MB cars that have 29 temperature sensors...

However, these higher tech modules do provide more efficiency. Also if you have the software, then you can interrogate them and perform all kinds of diagnostics on them which eases repair processes. Its just that the repair abilities are shifting from the mechanical and electrical to the electronic and software domains and the public knowhow is not available.
