Comment: Almost all of the UK's bestselling cars are at risk of keyless theft
New research today has warned of a spike in ‘keyless car thefts’. Amanda Stretton, motoring editor at Confused.com says:
“It can be easy to assume if your car has an immobiliser or other modern safety devices then it is safe from theft. However, cars are now being stolen or broken into by people armed with laptops and gadgets that can bypass the car’s immobiliser. Knowing how to prevent your car from being broken into is now more confusing than ever.
“We recommend all drivers to invest in low-tech solutions to prevent high-tech car thefts. First and foremost, drivers should think carefully about where they leave their car and try to park in a well-lit area, such as under a streetlamp. Other deterrents could include anti-theft devices such as steering wheel locks or a sticker saying “this car has a tracker”.
With motoring costs across the board continuously rising, drivers should do all they can to avoid the extra costs and burden of having their car broken into, or worse stolen. Drivers confused or concerned about how best to secure their car can use our go-to guide on how to beat car thieves.”
