Kia and Hyundai cars manufactured between 2010 and 2021 have a fatal flaw: they are extremely easy to steal. Because of this, many auto insurance carriers in Washington and beyond will not offer a new policy on these cars. Luckily, Davidson & Associates can help you find coverage for these vehicles.
The flaw is that you can easily bypass the ignition system on the cars, making them easy to steal, and increasing thefts by staggering percentages in many cities.
Many major auto insurance companies decided they can no longer allow 2010-2021 Kia/Hyundais on their client’s policies, or simply will not offer comprehensive and collision coverage on the vehicles. The manufacturers are aiming to respond as quickly as possible, but with over 8 million vehicles affected, it could take a while to correct the issue. This leaves many car-owners at a loss for proper protection.
Fixes to these problems could include updating the ignition on the car itself or sending steering wheel locks to affected vehicle-owners, to allow for an extra layer of security. If you own a Kia or Hyundai manufactured between 2010 and 2021, please be sure to follow updates from the manufacturer, and check in with your insurance carrier about impacted coverage.
