Posted this in another thread on the same subject:
I am fairly certain the Mercedes Hastings was driving had some type of OnStar system. I can tell you that with those systems alone, and the access
they have to the car, they are able to do quite a bit. I have been in my father's Mercedes when he had them unlock doors and start the engine, and his
is a 2001 model. I am sure at this point they have access to a lot more control in cars.
I also know OnStar touts having Stolen Vehicle Slowdown capability through its system, so why would the opposite not be available?
OnStar can force a moving vehicle to slow down to idle by electronically disconnecting the accelerator. OnStar can also prevent a vehicle from being
restarted once it’s been turned off. OnStar has been used successfully to foil car-jackers, the company said.
Speed up the vehicle, keep the doors locked then slightly turn the wheels and voila....wreck.
Mercedes version is called mbrace.
