And when the Sheriff puts out a warrant for ya it’ll lock the doors drive you straight to the station.

Sheriff's will start putting out warrants only on Friday nights hoping to catch then en route to home from the bar reeking of alcohol for extra charges

Nice. Now I’m thinkin the software will monitor the occupants live for criminal violations while operating the vehicle.

Makes me want to just keep older cars, the more intrusive the tech becomes.

would you be happier if a guy in a tow truck and with a gun take your car in the middle of the night?


MrGameRat t1_jaebjfl wrote

I would. But probably only because where I live if I were to default on my car loan the repo order would likely go to either my uncle or my cousin who both own repo companies. So in the event that all holds true, pretty sure I'd just get a phone call "bro pay your shit"

in NYC this guy tried to repo a cop's car and they arrested him and seized his cameras he had in his truck and help his truck for months and he couldn't work

Guess Mister tow trucker driver noob doesn't know the arsenal retrofitting potential a van down by the river is capable of

nah. calls are the play. best case scenario is they have patents at such a level that other companies cannot replicate the functional aspects of that software without encroaching on F's patents. All automakers & dealerships will want this function, so they'll license F to supply it. Will reduce manufacturing costs by reclaiming delinquent payee's vehicles and reselling/repurposing them. Imagine how psyched a dealership would be to sell the same car three or four times just by pressing the "return home" button.

Who tf is guna wana buy a car from them then?


Meat__Head t1_jae32p9 wrote

The average person isn't so regarded that they go into a vehicle purchase with the intention that it gets repossessed. It takes a special kind of regard to do that. Calls it is


Mountainman220 OP t1_jae3tvz wrote

Lots of regards out there so yea you’re prolly onto something but the real technique is inverting this sub and everyone’s saying calls…


Meat__Head t1_jae4k9a wrote

I think Ford trades with such little price movement, that neither calls nor puts are likely to print. They are probably more of a stock to actually buy shares as opposed to options if someone is long on them.


Mountainman220 OP t1_jae5cuf wrote

Yea just checked it out. They seem to be in a steady decline but yea daily volatility doesn’t seem like much. Certainly way more puts than calls currently

Everyone forgets the Divy, boomers eat that shit up for the like 5% yield dividend, that's why it looks like it never goes anywhere


Mountainman220 OP t1_jaevfqf wrote

Ah yea forgot it’s a dividend stock. I guess I’m in that generalization cuz I invest in dividend paying stocks in my Roth haha.

The same people that are buying them now.

People who don't foresee themselves going through a car repossession.

Any self driving car, theoretically, can do this.

Never buy a self driving car.

Cars will be subscription based soon, you wont own them. You will just pay a monthly fee. Lifestyle/ career choices are going to destroy the lower and middle class.

I’d be just as concerned with a Ford flying away.

Will it drive itself to the repair shop too?

Yea I just remembered they had a whole issue with their transmissions not parking so cars were just rolling all over the place after being parked. Wild times. I’m

There's a racist joke out there somewhere about a black man's father leaving in a self repossessing car, but it's not for me to make.

I called this exact scenario and more years ago. Been preaching it for years now. Next cars will process your thought crimes watch!

I don't believe a patent is needed. All of these software features can be incorporated into any automobile. I don't see that a patent is even needed.

Reselling the same vehicle without any additional overhead?! Bbbbbullish!

So what happens when someone's car get's bricked in a life threatening situation and they die as a result???


Runs_towards_fire t1_jaexxtc wrote

If it’s like every other feature on a ford, it’ll randomly stop working and then randomly start working again without any reason.

You shouldn’t be able to patent something obvious like that
