Tesla remotely disables Autopilot on used Model S after resale

Tesla has remotely disabled driver assistance features on a used Model S after it was sold to a customer. The company claims that the owner of the car, who purchased it from a third-party dealer, ’did not pay’ for the features and therefore is not eligible to use them. The features were enabled when the dealer bought the car.

I'm really suspicious about how Tesla even profits. These stories keep happening and they don't even sell that many vehicles. I wouldn't be surprised if we find out in a few years that the entire company was a giant Pump N Dump scheme.

That WAS a feature of the car, you'd expect that it would stay on the car.
