There is a good and bad side to everything, including social media. Kia and Hyundai (HYMTF) owners are increasingly falling victim to the ugly side of viral trends.
The ‘Kia Challenge’ is the latest viral trend shared millions of times on TikTok and YouTube, showing anyone who wants to know a relatively easy way to steal certain models from Kia and Hyundai.
Zoomers participating in the challenge steal the vehicles with just a USB cable.
The trend became so popular that, during a period in July, police in St. Petersburg, Florida said that half of the 56 cars stolen in the city were 2021 and older Kia/Hyundai models that used a key fob to start. .
