The race to please techie drivers could mean skimping on car quality... And a hog that doesn't squeal.
FOX News Radio's Jennifer Keiper with our weekly look at things with wheels in "FOX Wheels":
It's FOX Wheels.
We like the in-dash gadgets...
(Car) "Radio. Say a frequency or pre-set."
Automakers have been trying to please us with new tech but new today could be old tomorrow.
A JD Power survey suggests the rush to stay hip means less attention to other details involving engines, heating systems and paint.
The survey found a 3% jump in buyer complaints compared to a year ago with Porsche performing best -- only 74 problems per 100 vehicles.
Also good: Jaguar, Lexus, Hyundai and Toyota.
The worst performers: Fiat, Jeep, Mitsubishi, Scion and Mazda.
Ford is most improved.
Over the hog?
Harley-Davidson thinks you might be up for a change - so - it's introducing it's first electric motorcycle, which sounds more like a jet engine.
The futuristic looking LiveWire model will be used by several dozen riders on a 30-city tour. Their feedback will be used to tweak the bike which might not be market-ready for several years.
