I do talk cars with my friends who are mechanics, and they all tell me that newer Ford vehicles are one of the hardest vehicles to work on. Like how you have to remove a whole lot of parts just to have access to one part. They actually say Hondas are very well engineered for mechanic's accessibility.
But we all know that nothing compares to the carbureted vehicles of the past. I would be very nervous to fix a new car, but actually love getting under the hood of something older that has plenty of room under the hood for fixing mechanical problems.
