Newark has joined 19 other cities in a lawsuit against automakers Kia and Hyundai.
The lawsuit claims the companies intentionally failed to include engine immobilizers in their vehicles from 2011 to 2021. The devices make it more difficult to steal a car.
The suit claims that when a video exposing the defect was posted on social media, theft of these vehicles surged.
