What, like making a key fob that doesn't respond to a challenge/response call unless an accelerometer within it detects the fob is moving (that'd cut out midnight car theft at a stroke and should have been a standard feature from the outset) or the manufacturers realising that a car has to last many, many years, probably going without critical updates every few weeks (as we know we have to do with almost all other software-based devices) and still maintain rock-solid security?

Wishful thinking, I'm afraid: they rely on the insurance market picking up the pieces - and a cynic could argue that the industry as a whole benefits from car thefts because the missing vehicles have to be replaced. Not me: I'd never be caught uttering such a blasphemous and emotive statement.
