They'll probably hike the price of the car way up if you don't agree to view commercials while you're driving. And if you disable the ads somehow, the car will refuse to start.

Ew, that's bad. Since we can't have a community-developed car with open source software, I'll never have one. Fuck all these rich car making corporations.

EDIT: imagine you go buy one and is presented with the options:

<car model> ad-free: $10.000

<car model> $5.000

And people talking about it:

"No, no, always go with the ad-free."

The prices will be more like:

ad-free: 30,000

with ads: 23,000

Far more likely:

Ad-lite: 35k

Sponsored: 30k

Sponsored will be 20 mins of ads per hour, ad lite only 6mins.

And for the rest of the time you're in the car, you'll have to buy and watch the media the ads tell you to buy.

And they won't let you use netflix or your own video library, you'll have to subscribe to the automaker's media service.
