Remember when airbags were a feature? Heck, remember when side airbags and even mp3 players were a feature?
Those days are gone; at least on the Swapalease.com marketplace.
The national online car leasing marketplace has reviewed its complete inventory of vehicles and decided certain features of yesterday are so common today (or irrelevant) that it will no longer include them as a searchable check box for visitors and members. Here is the complete list of "features" that has been removed from the site:
In a quick online poll of its members, of the above features most men said they would miss T-Tops (42%) and Mp3 Jacks (35%), while most women said they would miss Mp3 Jacks (52%) and Airbags (46%). Less than 1% of women said they would miss T-Tops.
Imagine the day down the road when autonomous vehicles are so common place that the rear-view backup camera is no longer a relevant feature?
"It certainly seems as though vehicles and vehicle technology is advancing at break-neck speed," said Scot Hall, Executive Vice President of Swapalease.com. "Every now and then we find ourselves reviewing the feature aspects of our marketplace and making sure the options we present to our visitors and members are relevant with the driving landscape of today. We didn't feel like the 'T-Top' fit that mold anymore, so we'll send it off to the sunset."
