Who the hell cares? Do people unironically put their hands all over the dash when they’re driving to and from work?

    I like a classy soft touch interior, it's comfy while I wait for the recovery service/tow truck.

    yeah its stupid. journalists hold cars to standards that noone gives a shit about in the real world, but manufacturers see reviews like that and dont want bad pr. so they make the cars more expensive for all these dumbass reasons and now theres nearly no cheap poor people cars without all the bloat. I miss the days when GM would release some povertybox with engineering 10 years behind everyone else with a cheap interior then undercut the market average price by $1000, and have it be overall reliable enough. cant do that anymore

      The getting fricked in the brain because they get a new test car every couple of months so they can appreicate something and way overhype bullshit that ends up not mattering.
      I remember for over a year the car journalists were hyping the Nissan GTR saying no other car would ever be as good and then a year later the Tesla leaves in the dust according to what they care about.

      And they make up shit like saying oh this new BMW M3 makes the old one look like a slow piece of shit when in the real world the vast majority would be incredibly impressed with the old car and barely notice the difference.

      Means it's covered in a thin layer of rubber which will inevitably turn to a disgusting sticky gum and start to scratch/peel away after a few years

      This. How often does someone that tall also have an equally tall passenger sitting directly behind them? If anything, the tall passenger will be sitting next to the driver. Or a shorter passenger will be sitting in the passenger seat and the tall passenger will be sitting behind them.

      And I never heard of anyone giving a shit about hard plastics until I started watching DeJewo's channel.

    Never understood this complaint. Is a 30k car meant to be decked out with thick full grain leather?

    It's not about the plastic. It's about build quality. They cheap out and use shitty subpar materials there because they figure no one will notice. If they cheap out there then they're cheaping out other places too. "Who cares if the dashboard is hard plastic" you will in 5 years when that shitty cheap plastic is cracked and rattley as hell

    Understand that most auto journalists are normie lifestyle bloggers who just like having a different brand new press car to drive around for free every week. They really jump in a car and start randomly poking parts of the interior trim because they have no idea what they're doing. They just regurgitate the press release then dedicate the rest of the article to touch surfaces, the radio, and complaining the car doesn't drive itself.
