OC lawyer battles Kia and Hyundai for car theft in Tik Tok Challenge – New Santa Ana

Read Time:1 Minute, 31 Second

Criminals have been stealing Kia and Hyundai cars across the US ever since a Tik Tok video showed how easy it is to steal older models of these cars using just a screwdriver and a USB cable. Now the Orange County District Attorney, Jonathan Michaelsis fighting Kia and Hyundai for not installing immobilizers in cars manufactured between 2011 and 2021.

Will you still vote for Sarmiento even if his family is suing the city of Santa Ana?

Michaels has filed a class action lawsuit, so if your Kia or Hyundai was stolen now, you can join his lawsuit. If you own one of the cars manufactured between 2011 and 2021, but it hasn’t been stolen yet, you can also join a class action lawsuit.

The lawsuit alleges that the companies’ decision to rely on older technology has led to an increase in theft and a corresponding loss of value in the resale market.

Attorney Jonathan Michaels

Kia America said the company “provided steering wheel locks to law enforcement agencies in affected areas free of charge to prevent vandalism and theft” for those vehicles manufactured before November 1, 2021. However, those steering wheel locks were supposed to be provided directly to consumers stuck with them vehicles! Better yet, Kia would spend $500 per car to equip these cars with immobilizers.

Hyundai provided police departments with steering wheel locks for affected Hyundai owners. Hyundai has also identified a Firstech / Compustar security kit that targets the penetration method that thieves use to gain access to these vehicles. But Hyundai, like Kia, did not recall the cars in question to be equipped with immobilizers.
