Many new cars are equipped with keyless ignition systems. In fact, 70% of 2015 car models are equipped with the system. Drivers enjoy such systems for the convenience provided, however they are not without safety hazards. Recently, a class action lawsuit has been filed against ten of the world's largest car manufacturers alleging that the keyless ignition system with which they equip their automobiles poses a fatal hazard. The ten companies that have been named in the lawsuit include Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Honda, BMW, Volkswagen, Bentley, Mercedes Benz, Hyundai, and Kia. The keyless ignition defect is most likely to affect hybrid cars with smooth running, quiet engines which are produced by these companies.
