    Car manufacturers will use "security concerns" as a means of disabling someone's vehicle and forcing them to upgrade to something newer. This approach already exists in the industrial controls segment, so it's just a matter of time before that mentality comes to vehicles as well

      Rent seeking behaviour is a cancer and it's slowly killing everything. Life is already fucking expensive when you're poor, by turning everything into a subscription service, it's only going to get worse.

      Yes they will. I expect that buying a car in the future will be just a subscription plan. You get to pay a monthly fee indefinitely and you get a new car every few years. And if you stop paying, your car drives itself to the dealership.

      @FastJZS147the difference is the risk. Rent a center assumes all the risk in that transaction. When you buy a car, you pay for the car in full, with a loan from the bank. You take the risk. The car is the collateral. Ford should not have any input in repossession.

    Mercedes is looking to come out with features where they're not available until you pay for them even though they are already installed in the car. An example they gave were seat warmers. If you don't want to pay the extra fee for them then they just simply arrive disabled

    • guy gamer
      guy gamer 15 dni temu

      It's cheaper for everyone to do it this way. The assembly line has less variations of products to build so they save some money, but they still need people paying for the option.
      AMD, Intel, and Nvidia have all done this with GPUs and CPUs. I remember turning my AMD 6950 into a 6970 just by flashing the BIOS. Intel has sold quad cores that are locked to dual cores and you can buy an "upgrade".
      Why does it matter if the car I ordered without seat warmers has them disabled?

    • Blockbuster2033
      Blockbuster2033 15 dni temu +2

      Many companies already do it that way, and its not that bad. You still own the wiring and everything in your car. But the new thing is to have the seat heaters be a subscription plan. So that they will work for a month if you pay 10 bucks and then they will get deactivated again. Theoretically you still own all the hardware and could probably bypass the system by running wires straight from the battery through a switch to the seat heater.

    I work in the automotive industry and we will get cars equipped with past time devices which car sellers can use to prevent car owners from being able to start their vehicle if they are behind on payments. We sometimes have them come in when the device dies so they cant start the car, or after the owner finishes paying off the vehicle they come in to have the device removed.

    • Takata Miyagawa

      @JETWTF I don't think a little degraded functionality is going to help or motivate faster repayment from the people who are actually struggling to make their repayments. Linus raises an important point that incorrect seat positioning may be a safety hazard, so it should not be considered an optional feature with which to badger the debtor and motivate them to make their repayments.

    • JETWTF
      JETWTF 20 dni temu

      That's pretty much all this is but more towards trying to get someone to make those payments again in a nicer way, seat controls gets shut off but you can still drive to work is better than the car just not starting. There will be errors ofcourse and some inconvenience but those will be better than the device decides it is done working or there was a clerical error which results in a non starting car and a missed day at work. If something goes wrong it is better to be able to deal with it after the day at work is done rather than instead of work.

      Depends on the car, not the country. I'm in Northern Ireland and my 2015 Volkswagen Golf and my parents' 2015 Vauxhall Insignia both have automatic locking when you go over 10mph, but on both cars it was off by default and had to be enabled in settings.

      @Seán TBH I'm not sure, thinking about it again Linus sounds right, but I personally don't see why disabling the locking when driving off would be a thing that people would see as a feature to lose to the point of making them want to not miss payments more, what I'm saying is if you can't pay for your car, turning off that feature wouldn't do anything, maybe it's just me but both of my cars don't even have that feature, disabling my remote locking key/central locking so I had to unlock each door manually with the key would make me Hella more want to continue payments, glad I own both my cars and their 2014 models without all this 24/7 connected big brother stuff 🤣🤣

      Read a story about a repossession agent that had keys to the car they were repossessing, and just took it when the debtor parked and left the car for a short while. Turns out the debtor had left their baby in the back seat and the repo agent didn't notice until they'd driven the car some distance.

    Under Florida law for example this is how its written "your lender must give you an opportunity to meet at a mutually agreed-upon place to surrender the car and remove your belongings before the lender repossesses the car. If you don't do this, lenders aren't required to give you any further notice before the repossession"
    In other words depending on how this is implemented and done, this could easily break the law.

    • Jared Basham

      @Asmosis Yup I think your clearly missing some details, that part is covered in the law "If you don't do this, lenders aren't required to give you any further notice before the repossession" So no if you don't "mutually agree", the law does not protect against repossession.

    Someone needs to remind Ford that car crashes are done with the doors locked for the safety of the driver/passengers.

    Since so many people obviously have issue with this, just have it repossessed, from the 2nd, 3rd late monthly payment and be done with it. This way people won't even have the use of the vehicles.

      I've heard of killswitch systems for cars framed as a cheaper method of repossession. Still, debtor probably needs the car to go to work, and needs to go to work to pay the car loan, so, repossessing too promptly is arguably counterproductive to getting the loan repaid.

    On the topic of Tesla, they get around this by using a blanket update. As an example, my model 3 has radar, but it is now disabled and uses vision only. Just like the new cars. This was conveyed to the user and does function as expected.
    My point is, I hope that future auto designs around having these issues and will continue to improve what works. (Wishful thinking, but a hope)

      Currently the solution being taken is having the company follow the recall process. Tesla did this in Feb 2023 and issued a recall for over 360,000 of its cars. The software was just pushed over the air but still the recall feature is a tool that can be used. Problem would be trusting the governments can 1) determine the issue is real and 2) force the auto company to issue the recall in a timely manner. If that can be done, then the recall system would be good at forcing companies to update their old software.

    3:46 exactly. There basically is no support or updates for cars. You’re stuck with what you get, for better it got worse. No wonder Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are popular, since the stock infotainment system will never be updated with features or to address bugs.

    If this gets implemented (and it will, trust me) someone's going to be hurt. If that does happen, I *firmly* believe that the blame should be laid solely at Ford's feet. Not to even mention the risk of unauthorized access into the central command and control server(s). This is a very rare instance that I think the government needs to get involved and veto this whole idea, because Ford *WILL* abuse their control.

    Maybe the application for the patent at least is a good thing? A patent is a hurdle toward other companies to use the patented system or technology. as long as patents for annoying or bad systems stay at a single company we will still be able to go to the competition. UNLESS they decide to pay a fee to ford and also have systems like this and drive up the cost of the competitors at the same time.

      be careful, you haven't heard all the horror stories of Hertz reporting cars as stolen and having the renter's arrested a few hours after they leave the lot, or forgetting to check them in and harassing you three months later as the last person who had a vehicle that they've just lost in their system due to mismanagement? They've outright stolen cars from people who previously rented from them and tried to claim the person's personal car was a stolen rental car from them as well. Hertz is... legendary, and not for good reasons.

    First of all, if I saw something along the lines of "By signing this deed you give the automobile manufacturer complete and total control of the functions of your motor vehicle and the power to do with that control anything at its discretion," on a contract, I would tear that up. Second of all, if someone I knew had their car turned off or driven away by Ford, I would say something about how the customer expected a fully functional car, and since it wasn't given to them, why should they pay for it? One thing we need soon is legislation that stops companies from abusing tech.

    Prime example, my 2021 Toyota Corolla, which is still under bumper to bumper warranty, the entune software which controls updates to the car and the radio is no longer supported in the replacement software-only notifies me when I need to get an oil change. The navigation system which I paid for no longer functions because it was through the entune software specifically!
    The built in WIFI hotspot only works through AT&T, and since I bought it used, it is Registered to the previous owner and will not let me set it up! Toyota says that I need to contact AT&T, and AT&T says I need to contact Toyota, so that functionality is dead.
    Asking cat manufacturers to support their cars for even 3 years is a stretch these days, and add functions like Ford is suggesting is just asking for it to be exploited!

    Honestly I think this makes it so the market will be RIPE for a car manufacture that sells "dumb" cars. There's a small market for Dumb phones now but, they suck and don't do as much. Since a car only needs to take you from point A to B. and until they ban all older cars, either by SMOG or making it hard to repair and disposable, we can just refuse to buy new cars.
    it used to be cheaper to buy a new car than to fix and repair/maintain an older model. but at this point, if you can do your own repairs and maintenance, it's now cheaper to own older (more than 10 years old) cars.
