I hate riding around inside smoked up cars and would have to pretty much be given one in order to consider owning it. My computer/electronics work shows this is a nightmare for this type of equipment too. IT gums up mechanical parts, blocks up fans and cooling components, and I just all around see more problems with computers owned by smokers. There is also the 1/2 inch of tar cemented dirt you find inside!
I figure certain parts of cars like the radio, climate control, and other electronics are likely impacted. Since modern cars are more electronic than ever with integrated navigation and entertainment systems, I figure some of the issues I see with computers would also apply here.
Is there a general rule of thumb on how much resale is impacted? I am sure there is a certain percentage of the population that won’t buy them.
