A report released in September 2022 by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and Highway Loss Data Institute showed that Hyundai and Kia vehicles lacked electronic mobilisers (later models are installed with immobilisers and thefts have tailed off). There have been several work arounds including Hyundai offering steering locks and a bluetooth switch that can be hard-wired to the car to immobilise the engine.
If you own a Kia or Hyundai manufactured between 2015 & 2019 then you should be prudent and take precautions against theft. A Find It Stop It GPS tracker is just £59.95 with no ongoing monthly subscription. Our device also comes with a stop function which can be switched on to stop the vehicle if it is stolen or car jacked. Please note that this is different to an immobiliser, and continued use could see the battery is drained or the unit damaged.
