    Look at all those parts! No wonder ICE vehicles require so much maintenance.

    I love the "spare parts" crawling away at the end. Looks like one of my projects.

    A diesel injector pump can have as many parts as that whole engine.

    With that they, conventional cars can be fairly reliable too. Greater complexity doesn't always imply a drop in reliability.
