Well, this isn't a car - but a good friend of mine had to sit on a
heavily marketed new express train, "signatur", for hours because of
"computer issues". Being the computer enthusiast he is, he went to
look... What he saw was ...a Windows 95 "Illegal Instruction" dialog

The trains later needed repairs because the (what is the word...
"aksel" .. cam shaft? The thing between the wheels :P) broke in two... I
was not surprised...
