Okay it makes sense now. Low trim Hyundai and Kias from the earlier model years don't have an immobilizer. There's a trick where if you use a metal object (usually usb cords are used) you can override the ignition and get the car to start.

This 'trick' spread onto tiktok and of course now there's going to be lots of dumbass kids trying it out.

If Kia and Hyundai would just recall the models affected and fix the issue, then we'd probably see the carjacking/car theft rates decrease by 90%

Not limited to them in general. The newest influx of teenagers are riddled with social media brain rot and being mentally stunted from being locked inside for 2 years. Also they have terrible parents who blame everyone but themselves for doing a bad job raising them.
