At 25 GB per hour of vehicle use, your vehicle generates and shares enough data to fill the storage of a 120 GB iPhone over the course of a five hour road trip. Not only is that an astounding amount of data (web browsing only produces 0.015 GB per hour), the vast majority of us don’t know our vehicles are collecting and sharing data.

So what does that mean for you as a vehicle owner? What does your vehicle know? How is this data used—and by who? And what, if anything, can you do to access your data and protect your privacy?

In this series of five articles, we will answer these questions and more to get you up to speed on your vehicle data. Check out a sneak peek of topics, each its own post, and stay tuned for the full posts in the near future:
