Just looked at a new Ram pick up;they have a similar "scam"as GM,you purchase heated seats,remote start ect and in three months it won't work unless you subscribe to their service @$15 a month.
NOT doing it!

I wish we could get vehicles without all the fancy stuff
just the old plain jane type.

Copied from some website....

Tacoma's higher $27,000-ish base price can be subverted with some creative option selection—namely a Utility package that removes the rear seats, rear audio speakers, and the sliding rear window (and replaces most exterior trim and bumpers with black pieces). This strips the entry-level, four-cylinder, extended-cab Toyota Tacoma SR down to a proper cheap pickup level while slashing $1,715 from the MSRP, enough of a reduction to drop the price to only $26,055.

Yes, I agree. My truck is the work truck trim and no onstar. Car is pretty simple too. Maybe I'll hang on to these for a while.

And they never give up...

My friend is nerve deaf... cannot hear a thing but 10 years and counting they keep contacting him to activate... makes no sense but it cost next to nothing to solicit but they have sent a few letters too.

I don't drive my vehicles enough anymore to warrant paying a subscription for simple conveniences. I guess I'll buy my next car from a car maker, not a glorified software management company.

That’s just wrong.
Next they will lock the steering wheel unless you pay $xx per month.
