There have been reports that thieves are using amplifiers to trick late model cars that your wireless key fob is nearby
to open the doors, start the engine and drive away.
Concerned this is trick is going to get more common. Shocked the automakers didn't see this coming.
While they recommend storing your wireless key fob in the freezer when home, what do you do when you're at a restaurant?
