Hey dudes. Been a few years lol. I have an 13' Optima SXL and I love this car. So we took a road trip this weekend and something kept poking my foot while I'm driving. I stopped to eat and looked under and a zip tie was stabbing me, then I saw some box hanging that I hadn't seen before along with a push button. HOW I never saw this I have zero idea...

What the **** is it?

Yeah, some dips%&$ dealers install these on EVERY car they sell, then they try to upsell you in the financing process to purchase the monitoring package. They tell you scare tactics about how the car is very popular to be stolen, and with this system they can immobilize and recover it yada yada yada. If you finally fend them off and refuse it, they says they don't bother to remove the unit because it is too much trouble, they just de-activate it.
I also think that it may be used by the finance company to immobilize the car if you skip payments.
