Based on the following information from the article - the car doesn't "die" you put a code in to keep it running. When you make your payment, you get a code - if you don't make your payment you don't get your code. So if the car doesn't start - it's truly your fault, not some mix up at the office when they "turn your device off" for not making a payment.

So if you are "at the club and car doesn't start and you get mugged" - it's your fault, period.

Once Macy sends in her payment, she's given a code number to input into a remote that connects to a device underneath the dash. "I stick it right in here. You punch in your code, you hear another little chirp and you're done," explains Macy, as she easily connects the device that will allow her car to run for another week

This is a great method to insure the lenders/dealers are paid. WAY too many of them deal with dead beats.
