This seems a bizarre look through rose-tinted spectacles! Modern cars are FAR higher in quality and reliabilty than cars even 20 years ago, never mind 100 years. Cars today need just 2 oil changes in 20000 miles. Cars from the 20's/30's/40's were lucky to get to 20000 miles without a full engine rebuild (or at least a complete valve job).
