That sounds a bit price gougey. Either the dealer is insane, or they pretend to offer lavish discounts to sell it at the lower price most sell for with those features.

Was it the Hellcat that dealerships were charging ridiculous prices for before they even received it?

Yeah, probably something like that.

This is exactly correct. How many accidents do these in dash screens contribute to compared to older, knobbed, radios on which one can feel for the knobs and buttons for volume and stations without taking one's attention from the road?

My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

I like a mixture of the two. I like having android auto available on a big screen for the maps and other features like music, but I like having a traditional button for the volume controls, climate controls, etc.

As long as there's Bluetooth and a volume / next track button on the wheel, I'm fine. I haven't bought music for years, preferring instead to listen to the radio as the CD era started dying out... but thanks to streaming apps like Spotify, I now have several playlists stored on my phone. Just a quick bit of setting up before a trip and I don't have to fiddle with anything afterwards.

Phone navigation apps, however, that's a good reason to have an infotainment screen.

My last supervisor kept recommending I paid for Audible. Each time I responded that I signed up for the trial, listened to the two books during one five-hour drive, and had seven more five-hour drives before I got another $15 audio book.

I never felt she listened well.

I should see what music the library has, not that either of my cars has a functional CD player.
