Long history
Alas, automakers have a history of downplaying (and even ignoring) exploits and vulnerabilities in their cars (see, e.g., forbes.com/forbes/welcome/?toURL=https://www.forbes.com/sites/andygreenberg/2013/07/24/hackers-reveal-nasty-new-car-attacks-with-me-behind-the-wheel-video/ ). Can't say as I particularly trust them.

Re: Connected cars need extensive blackbox testing
Once Mobile Ransomware starts hitting connected cars, the U.S. government may get involved as it did with seatbelts and airbags.  Given history we may have decades of connected cars before government regulations force manufacturers to fix them.  Unfortunately for consumers, manufacturers have learned that remote software updates are very cost effective.  This will leave the connection available for others, as well as manufacturers, to try to turn it into a revenue stream.

Connected cars need extensive blackbox testing
A rapidly emerging trend is to apply extensive blackbox testing for connected cars and in particular fuzzing seems to be rather effctive in exposing hidden weaknesses.
