I am sure you are not the only one annoyed by this phenomenon. However, I don't think you will escape it by choosing a different brand of vehicle. So perhaps is is best to just accept it as the price of doing business and try to enjoy the car you have. Just my thoughts.
I'm not sure it's evolving as much as it's optimizing profit. Looks to me like they are using the Bill Gates/Microsoft method to riches. Create something great but only give out some of i every year, forcing people to upgrade.
Hey, it works for Microsoft.
