Ford patents self-driving car that repossesses itself if the owner fails to keep up with payments



Ford is not taking any chances with owners missing car payments - the company is working on a system that prompts the vehicle to repossess itself. A newly awarded patent describes a car self-driving back to the showroom or a scrapyard if the owner does not answer messages about their delinquent account.

The American carmaker would start the process by disabling 'comfort features,' playing noises inside the car and limiting where the vehicle can drive. If all else fails, Ford will activate the self-driving feature and the owner has no choice but to give up the car.
