Spoke to my State Farm agent yesterday, and we talked about St. Louis. I live in NW burbs of Chicago. He told me, that if I buy another KEY start Hyundai/Kia, they will NOT insure it. Push button is fine...Insurance companies are raising rates and denying coverage even for Hyundia's with push button ignition.
Insurance Companies Are Refusing to Cover Hyundais and Kias As Thefts Continue (Update)
A quarter ounce of C4 with a circuit to the starter motor with a coded circuit interrupter in the circuit would stop the vehicle from being stolen. Just place under the driver seat, and make sure to enter the clear code before heading to work. Illegal in all 50 states. But once the word got out on TicTok that stealing a Hyundai causes the seat to explode and the guy is no longer a guy, thefts will sure come down.I’m wondering what a “security software update” would change here that would be reasonably effective.
