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

"Why do I have to ask Tesla for permission to sell MY car?"

Good question... is it really YOUR car, in the sense that you actually OWN it and can do with it whatever you want?

I don't know the particulars in Tesla's contracts, but lately I have been noticing a tendency amongst makers of vehicles to regard their products not so much as sell-and-forget physical things, but rather as intellectual property on wheels that the "buyer" may use for some time, within clearly defined (and somewhat repressive) parameters.
