Connected car in the second-hand lot? Don't buy it if you're not hack-savvy

Not many cars around that use apps to control them .. dare I mention Tesla? The procedure for transferring ownership is pretty hard:

Old owner:

DVLA transfer

Log out of the app

Inform Tesla of the transfer of ownership and also send a copy of the registration

New owner is required to inform Tesla of:

Colour copy or photo of current driver’s licence

Copy or photo of vehicle registration

Phone Number

Email Address (the email use for My Tesla Account)

Home or mailing address

Might be easier to buy a much older car that doesn't have apps to control it.

(PS: I'm a Tesla owner)
