Automotive technology has come a long way, and more than ever the cars on the market today are jam-packed with all sorts of neat features. But that doesn't mean everyone is a fan of them.

Oliver Calilung: Blinking brake lights.

Renato Alexander Garcia: Automatic transmission.

Angelo Cruz: Computer box. Love the simple carbureted engine system. And please do include passenger eject seats. Para sa mga nakisakay lang pero mas marunong pa sa driver.

Ron Cruz: These days cars have too many unnecessary features that tend to become a liability as the car ages.

Paul Bryan Ramon SiaI hate the auto-fold side mirror when you lock the door.

Patrick Julaton: Auto rain-sensing wipers. Really, how hard could it be?
