Elizabeth you are absolutely right as the plastic parts took place of several metal parts ulitamately resulting in poor quality .It is really nice that the new tech is good in quality , high in efficiency and cheaper in cost.

Lighter and stronger

Interesting story about how you can have it both ways with cars--ie, lighter materials don't mean that strength or quality suffer. I guess I am curious about whether these lighter steels would replace some of the plastic parts that carmakers started using because it was less expensive than metal and easier to manufacture. I find these car parts really suffered in terms of quality and strength and didn't hold up over time.
