Keyless systems make it easier for car thieves

The German Automobile Club ADAC has been examining keyless start systems in new cars for years. Chairs: Car thieves can easily steal almost all of the 500 models now tested. Few manufacturers respond.

It’s every driver’s nightmare scenario: After shopping at the supermarket, we carry our bags towards the car. But wherever the car is parked, there is only an empty parking space. In disbelief, we search the rows – but there is no trace of scale. Have car thieves been hit?
