Keyless car thefts in Sussex
21 October 2022
Keyless car theft is unfortunately on the rise in Sussex.Any vehicle with a keyless entry or start system is at risk of being stolen. The most targeted vehicles in Sussex have historically been Range Rovers (especially Sport models), Mercedes and BMWs. A keyless entry system allows the car to unlock when the fob is nearby, without pressing a button. Likewise, a keyless start system involves pushing a button to start the car without the need to insert a key.There is further information on keyless vehicle theft here.
