Class-action lawsuits against Kia and Hyundai pop up nationwide as online trend stealing cars explode

Police are chasing down teenagers following an online trend where they steal cars and post their joyrides. As the trend explodes, police say two car makers, Hyundai and Kia, are finding themselves at the center of the thefts. Police and auto theft experts say it’s not a coincidence. Experts report that these cars typically lacked an essential security feature called an ‘engine immobilizer,’ which helps the engine recognize the key, preventing theft. The vehicle manufacturers say they have corrected this issue in their most recent models.
