Fighting "planned" obsolescence.

The government might need to aso ensure that customers can make software updates when a car manufacturer decides to "play dirty". I the Car's entertainment system software is updated , but a similar car with the same entertainment software package is not updated due to the company ceasing upgrades to that particular model; would it be allowed to update that software manually?

How do customers avoid "planned" auto obsolescense by not making software updates updates available to some car models?
