    Generally speaking, you're able to open a car's hood and do whatever
    you like so long as you own it and have the skills - and if you don't,
    you can pay a mechanic who does.
    Cars also tend not to call home, and they tend not to have faults
    which only the manufacturer is allowed to repair (even if the
    manufacturer is going to be a natural expert).

It used to be this way, but it is changing -- because of proprietary
software in the cars!  So your point is basically valid, but some
details need to be adjusted.
