The car still has valves, but they are no longer installed to allow you to
 make adjustments.  These new improved valves serve several different purposes:
   1. They allow the hydraulic pressure of the oil to adjust them,
  2.  They allow costly repairs in about 0.0000056% of the cars,
  3.  The sometimes allow air to get in and out of the engine, and
  4. They increase manufacturing (and thus, showroom) costs.

The valves in the tires, air conditioning, etc. are unchanged.  
As before, no adjustment is necessary.

BTW, just be sure that  you don't try driving one of these cars when there
is no fuel in the tank.  You will almost certainly fry the valves (thanks,

Is it Friday yet?
