Mental exercise, image this >
1. If a Bank wanted to take your vehicle back from one late payment... They'll be more than happy to give said "call center" company a buzz to have your car repo'd from ANYwhere! Possibly leaving you, your wife/daughter/son stranded in a place of danger.

2. If a business property has vague "No parking" sign(s) on their premises...
Instead of calling for a shady local tow truck company to remove your vehicle, Just give remote-driver-company a call. Again leaving you stranded without recourse.
Because who are you going to call to get your vehicle back? A local tow company or more likely make long distance international calls to india to ask or explain where your vehicle has been moved???

3. If a car dealership (or USED car dealer) wanted to "reclaim" your vehicle because there was a "mistake" in YOUR finances that "they didn't catch earlier" or some other dirty scam... Boom! You can bet your pretty underwear they'll give said call-center a friendly reminder to have your ride repo'd, remotely!

Be careful what you wish for...
Some food for thought.
Make the payments on your car. And you have no proof of things like this happening outside of movies. "From what has already been occurred"
