Hi all,
I’m hoping to buy a new Kia Sorento this year, but I live in Milwaukee and out-of-control thefts of Kias and Hyundais in my city have made me concerned.

I know that the models of Sorento that I’m looking at have an Immobilizer System. Is that going to be enough?
The police aren’t saying which Kia models are being stolen. Most descriptions of Kia thefts in my area say the thieves remove the rear window, climb in and peel back the steering column and then manually manipulate the ignition.
Should I wait until the 2022s are out, or do the EX and higher Sorentos have an effective anti-theft system already?

Thanks in advance for your help!
