do cars still leak oil?

i remember growing up and there always being oil stains on the driveway and parking lots with oil slicks. now, after running through numerous newer vehicles over the last 15 or 20 years (several accumulating 100k miles) i cant recall ever thinking i need to get that oil leak fixed or making that calculation about how many quarts of oil was break even on an intake manifold gasket replacement. has the quality of cars gotten better or did my family just have crappy cars when i was younger.
