‘My car has been captured by the manufacturer and I’m fighting for my rights….legal thoughts welcome…
I have a fairly new Hyundai Kona that I love and it just came back from the dealers with an update for the satnav.
But it turns out that’s not all.
In the new T’s & C’s the car is now equipped with new features. Geo Fencing and Geo Timing. The first sets off an alarm if you travel outside a set geographic area. The second does the same if the car is used outside of a specific time.
Both highly desirable features we would love to have of course.
These features can be activated to follow any future legal requirements of the government and no doubt the alarm will be able to switch the car off if I’m naughty enough to stray outside my 15 minute zone that’s coming. That’s not to mention the risk of a hacker taking control of my car.
So this has been done without my informed consent and had I been asked I would have refused it of course.
I have said disconnect the car from external sources completely and I’ll be happy or if not then take the car back for a refund.
The Service Manager is wide awake and knows this is only about big brother control.
Looking for a legal basis for a claim….’
