In a letter dated ‌September 29th, 2023, a group of legislators has ‌urged the National Highway Traffic Safety ‌Administration (NHTSA) to use its authority and issue a recall of certain Hyundai and Kia vehicles. These vehicles ‌have been ‍shown to be particularly vulnerable to theft due to their easily bypassed ignition switches ​and lack of engine ⁤immobilizers. The letter highlights the significant increase in auto thefts of these ​vehicles and the negative impact⁢ it’s had on communities⁤ across the ⁢nation. From a viral social media trend⁤ to a surge in thefts and‌ even ⁢fatal crashes, ​it’s ⁣clear that this issue is ‍a​ matter of​ public safety. The manufacturers have initiated a voluntary service⁣ campaign, but it’s not enough. With only a small percentage of affected vehicles ⁣receiving updates, the legislators⁤ are calling on the NHTSA to take action and issue a recall for these⁣ unsafe vehicles. Lives are at risk every day and the longer this issue goes unaddressed, the more lives and communities will be affected. Urgent action is needed to ⁤ensure the safety and ‌security⁤ of ‌these vehicles and their owners.
