Dilip you said it <In short, the modern cars are becoming too complicated for maintenance. Quick and economical repair by replacing individual components has become impossible.> What next-- maybe the old Bicycle is returning with a vengence when gas goes $10+/gallon.
Some people call it Appropriate Technology.

The owner of the Mercedes can expect a recommendation from the repair shop to replace the whole transmission.> I owned a Nissan Murano (automatic continuously variable transmission) that suddenly lost acceleration on the highway and ruined a trip. The car wouldn't pick up above 30 mph. I started driving back home and after 10/20 miles the car started running fine. This was on a Saturday. I drove around during the weekend with the "Check Engine" light on. On Monday, I took it to the dealer. They called me to give the bad news that there is electronic speed sensor module problem and the whole transmission has to be replaced at $6000. As you may have guessed the warranty was just over after three years. I got the car out of the shop without getting the transmission replaced. I noticed that the "Check Engine " light was reset by the dealer. I drove the car for another three months without a problem. However, at that point I replaced the Murano with a Mazda CX-9 and traded the Murano against the new car.> > I contacted Nissan on the problem. They couldn't offer any technical assistance. I also had many discussions in the Nissan Users' Club, without any real help.> > In short, the modern cars are becoming too complicated for maintenance.
