The major car brands accused of doing nothing to tackle keyless theft

Citroen, DS, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Lexus, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Opel/Vauxhall, Peugeot, Renault, SsangYong and Suzuki, all told Which? Magazine, said: “A keyless entry system means you can get into and start your car without ever having to fumble for a key, but it has been exposed as a major security flaw - so it is unacceptable to hear that several manufacturers have still done nothing about it. Richard Billyeald, chief technical officer at Thatcham Research, said: “The number of carmakers now offering relay attack counter-measures with new vehicles is steadily increasing and should be applauded. “It’s also important to remember that the motion-sensor fob, while a good short-term fix, is not the ultimate solution to the keyless vulnerability, which should be designed out of new vehicles completely in the future.”
