FEDERAL WAY, Wash. - One Kia owner got so fed up after his car was stolen he decided to dump the vehicle off at the dealership where he bought it and walk four hours back home.
On Monday, Behrouz Alimoradi said someone stole his Kia. The incident happened in Federal Way.
Alimoradi said police found the car. But as it sat parked in the driveway, he says someone came back and smashed out all the windows.
"I’m tired, you know. I swear I’m tired about this car," he said.
Alimoradi says in two years, he has dealt with four different incidents involving this car. He says he’s paid thousands of dollars out of his own pocket to get the vehicle repaired, but this most recent incident is the last straw.
"This situation is too much bad. I don’t want it," he said.
Alimoradi says he was so upset with the situation that he dropped his Kia off at the dealership and walked about four hours back home.

Next week it could be Mustangs or F-150s.
They could just make cars with keys again like they used it. So yeah, it kinda is their fault.
He is blaming everyone else for his bad decisions.
The car has a note undoubtably.
So the lienholder will consider this a voluntary repo.
The car will be sold at auction and those proceeds will be applied to the deficiency balance he will owe. He will be sued to recover the rest of the money owed.
( although in Washington who knows. Iirc many years ago Wa was one of the only non-deficiency states, might still be ? )
Ford didn’t release cars in 2020 and 2021 that had no passive antitheft transponder systems.
This means those kias can be “hotwired”
So no, this won’t happen to ford.
Maybe he needs to move out of his sh***y neighborhood
Keys and locks can be defeated., Most modern cars have a RFID chip in the key or fob that has to match the code stored in the computer before the car will start, but Kia made it so simple that you could defeat the ignition lock without tools, no RFID-computer interlock.
What a name for a car (Kia = Killed in Action).
“They could just make cars with keys again like they used it. So yeah, it kinda is their fault.”
The only thing I really don’t like about the Mazda is the key-fob
My son is a lawyer in Las Vegas, and just last night he was telling me that Kias are being stolen left-and-right because they are much easier to "hotwire" (something about a USB port).
Federal Way is by far the worst suburb of Seattle-Tacoma. It is just as bad as the worst neighborhoods in Seattle.
That's the ticket. And buy a new expensive secure car. And a protective security fence with cameras. And maybe some guards to secure his house. Yeah, that's all he needs to do. I wonder what's keeping him from it.
Actually the problem is these cars do have keys. They lack any other anti theft device.
You're not expecting the Government or cops in Seattle to do something about it, are you?
A friend of mine just had her Kia Soul stolen by some joyriding teens in Baltimore. The cops found it still running, wrecked, and she can’t afford to have it repaired. So now she will never have another car. Isn’t that sickening? Wish the joyriders had been run over during their joy ride.
“...she will never have another car.”
Why is that?
She had crummy insurance, wouldn't pay a dime, and she can't afford to buy another car.
Can we deport Behrouz Alimoradi?
