Ford wants to patent a system that would let cars repossess themselves if drivers miss payments.
At first, the cars would lose the use of features like GPS, air conditioning, and the radio.
If the owner still skips payments, the car could lock them out and drive itself to a repo agency or even a scrapyard.
Ford’s latest patent application shows a bizarre new way that cars could be repossessed in the future if their owners don’t make payments on time.
Why not just have the dealers run credit checks? Oh wait bad credit is where the profits come from. Such nice guys at Ford.
Found Out Repossessed Dog
There is a missing step: if the owner still skips payments, the company takes out a $2 million life insurance policy on the owner, then disables the brakes.
They would run out of insurance companies very quickly…
