"driving an IoT-capable car"

Thanks, but I'd rather stick with a car that I can be reasonably sure will get from point A to point B, and not be stopped/hijacked/tracked by outside parties. Heck, if I can get that, I will even settle for one that is restricted by Henry Ford's old wisecrack about the Model T--"You can get one in any color you want, as long as its black."

Archaic, true, but I can always buy a data plan and have kids/passengers play with tablets or something during long drives--without routing that data transfer through the car's systems, where it creates untold options for electronic mischief.
