New C8 corvette can be stolen with car running and no key fob

Only if it is in the key fob removed from vehicle while engine running mode.

This is a great feature compared to the existing situation. I don’t know why it’s a problem. You’re not obligated to ignore the missing key fob warning and keep driving. It’s your choice.

If you started a Ford and pulled the key out then forgot your keys, you would have to leave it running until you get back, which tells everyone around that it can be stolen when they hear it running. With other key fob vehicles it’s the same way. If the key fob was removed the driver can’t shut it off or there will be no way of restarting it.

With this feature someone can at least shut it off if they forgot their key fob, so any passers by won’t notice that it’s running and try to steal it.
