Last year Tesla dealt with its first real scandal, the so-called “bricking” of batteries that are allowed to run entirely out of charge. But what about a car company (Renault)that could brick a car’s battery on purpose?
Cutting off your car battery
This is known as “bricking” ! Significantly, stems from Renault keeping an eye on their customers who do not keep up with a payment. Consequently, this is allegedly in the small print ! So, under the French car companies “rented battery” agreement.
Also in the service agreement. Sadly, it is alleged that Renault has the right to halt the possible charging of the battery. When the rental contract comes to an end. Apparently, this also includes the same penalties if you fail to make a payment.Thus, on your car agreement, making the car impossible to drive
I wonder what would happen ! In the case of say a mess up with paperwork. Accordingly, if the payments from the bank may go wrong.Therefore, would Renault then cut off your battery supply. What a mess that would be to sort out. Hence, we all know that these large banks and credit companies do make mistakes. Naturally, you could be stranded anywhere and it would not be your fault?. The mind boggles.
