What does the insurance companies say about this?
It's no different to having doors that are extremely easy to pick without causing a scratch. I'd be very weary about buying one of these cars, and if I already owned one I'd remove the app ASAP.

This is getting beyond ridiculous. There needs to be a new fine for a company bluntly ignoring a well known issue, and only addressing it when it becomes a national issue

My would the car companies want their car more secure than the competition ? When it's stolen, the owner gets reimbursed by insurance and promptly buys a new model.

The loss is small to owner, and even the insurance company needs a certain level of losses to keep everyone making monthly payments. The incentives are just all pushing against making costly changes.

That's just it. If the car gets stolen this way, or by the use of (illegal) duplicate keys, the insurance company cry "fraud" and give the owner nothing!
