Kia Owners Can Get Free Clubs This Weekend
(Reading, PA) -- Pennsylvania State Police are giving out free theft-prevention clubs this weekend to people who own older-model Kias [[ key-YUHs]]. The device will be given to people whose Kias use a traditional key to start the engine, not a key fob or push-button. A social media trend has led to a spike in thefts of cars with those starting systems. The Pennsylvania Auto Theft Prevention Authority says dealerships have a software fix that should cut down on the thefts, but most are backed up for installations because of demand. The giveaway is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Troop L State Police barracks on Kenhorst Boulevard in Reading.
