I see this as part of a "global" strategy. They buy Chrysler and learn how to make crappy automatic transmissions. They can't afford to buy Microsoft, but they need their help in installing bug-ridden crash-prone software that will cause your car to "general protection fault-error-sucker-that-bought-junk" all the time.
Instead of a Check-Engine light, you'll have a "Empty the bank account" light that will come on, access your bank info right through the 'net, and send the money to your dealer. Every time you get $5000 in your account, the EBA (empty bank account) light comes on,the car drives itself to the dealer, and they "reset" all the broken junk.
And of course, we'll require MB gasoline that sells for only twice the regular price...
