Thieves key on hack that leaves Hyundai, Kia cars vulnerable

A Kia which was damaged after being stolen is seen at an auto repair shop in Milwaukee on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2021. Some Hyundai and Kia cars and SUVs are missing a key anti-theft device, and the crooks have figured it out. An insurance industry group says they're being stolen at a rate nearly double the rest of the auto industry because they don't have computer chips in the keys.
