Five months after a man returns a rental car, he can still unlock and lock the vehicle, and even start and stop its engine. This example illustrates just how much smartphones are now linked to modern automotive technology.
Masamba Sinclair rented a Ford Expedition from rental car giant Enterprise in May of this year. Of course he wanted to try out the modern connection platform „FordPass“. Thanks to this app, the driver can use his smartphone to control elementary controls of the vehicle. Sinclair was able to start and stop the car’s engine, unlock and lock the doors and locate the Ford.

.@Ford I returned this car two weeks ago and you’ve shown no willingness to allow rental companies to remove my access to unlock it and start the engine. Maybe I’ll just start randomly unlocking it.
