I learned yesterday that in Tesla's newest car, if you haven't paid for autopilot, the option to turn it on is still there in the touchscreen - and if you accidentally do turn it on, Tesla immediately - and without warning or notification - charges $14,100 (the cost of the autopilot feature) to the credit card you have on file with them.

@witchfynder_finder @noelle « Connectivity is an important part of all Tesla cars, further enhancing the driving experience by providing access to features that require data usage — including streaming music and media, live traffic visualization and more.

All cars come with Standard Connectivity which provides access to most connectivity features over Wi-Fi only, in addition to basic maps and navigation and music streaming over Bluetooth®.

Premium Connectivity provides the ability to access all connectivity features over cellular, in addition to Wi-Fi, for the most intuitive and engaging ownership experience. Premium Connectivity is available as a monthly subscription of $9.99 plus applicable tax and can be purchased at any time from the Tesla app or your Tesla Account. Orders of Model S, Model X, Model Y and Model 3 will receive a Premium Connectivity trial at delivery. »

I've seen somebody remotely shut down the breaks on a Toyota before but it sounds like you can just, program a Tesla to drive into parlement. Jesus too much of that car is online.

@Chickiepup @noelle @Leaf Cars are way too electronic anymore tbh

I don't want anything more complex than engine sensors or a stereo in my car
