It doesn't even make sense from a bean counters perspective.

How much time would it take for their engineers to go through the code to find those bugs? I can almost guarantee the cost would be more than $1500. Any serious bug should be worth at least $10k. And as we're talking about vehicles here some bugs could be life threatening, I'd up the bounty on such critical bugs to $50k and still consider that a bargain.
