The new electric Renault Zoe apparently will prevent the car owner from charging the battery (which can only be rented) if the owner falls behind on payments.
If this is OK why aren't all cars disabled under similar conditions? Late with a payment, the car won't start. Maybe the contract says you can only rent the OS for the cars' ECUs, never own it. Should be legal, right?
