State Farm will no longer issue new insurance policies for select Hyundai and Kia vehicles in certain states due to a massive rise in thefts among the vehicles. State Farm employees have confirmed the list of cars that will be rejected and it covers 105 specific models and model years. The confirmation of 105 Kia and Hyundai models being blacklisted comes via New Orleans CBS affiliate 4WWL and includes a chart of models and years that are restricted.

The restriction reads: "Kia and Hyundai models and years with an 'x' below will be ineligible unless the sales associate has verified the presence of a passive engine immobilizer."

The list includes model years that likely still fall under warranty for existing customers and includes:

  • 2015-2021 Hyundai Accent
  • 2015-2021 Hyundai Elantra
  • 2015-2021 Hyundai Kona
  • 2015-2021 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • 2015-2021 Hyundai Tucson
  • 2015-2021 Hyundai Veloster
  • 2015-2021 Kia Forte
  • 2015-2021 Kia Optima (including hybrid models)
  • 2015-2021 Kia Rio
  • 2015-2021 Kia Sedona
  • 2015-2021 Kia Sorento
