    When the light starts to flash, you had better have the cash.​
    That's the reality for millions of subprime borrowers whose used car purchase is contingent upon having an unusual option: a little box mounted underneath the dashboard that forces them to make their payments on time.
    A light on the plastic box flashes when a payment is due. If the payment isn't made and the resulting code punched in to reset the box, the vehicle won't start. The next step is a visit from the repo man.
    As tighter credit crunches consumers, it seems business can only get better for Sekurus, a company based in this suburb east of Los Angeles. It's among several companies that market such devices.

    Exactly what I was thinking. I hope they don't shut off while the car is on the interstate doing 70 mph in traffic, that could get pretty ugly.

    No, I didn't know that. I thought being patriotic meant loving your country!

    Maybe I'm just old fashioned, though.
