How Hard is It to Break into a Keyless Car?

I was talking to a car salesman this afternoon and we were going through all of the features that we could put on our new car.Obviously the tech that you can get on the new vehicles is startling. I was curious as to whether or not it would be easy to break in to a car with a keyless entry system. Of course if you search on the internet they will offer to sell you a keyless theft fix which is apparently some sort of added security layer that is supposed to protect you from people breaking in to your car. It is probably not that hard if the thief is clever enough, for instance some of these things are not all that complicated. It is like a four digit pin number I think on some of these locks and that can obviously be broken.

I am sure that some one who was really clever could design some gizmo that would break the code automatically. Of course it would be something you could just sell to a thief, in fact it might not even be illegal for you to build a device like that did that. It is only illegal if you use it I would guess. Any technology is vulnerable to the person who is clever enough or persistent enough to work on the problem until they crack it. If you can invent a thing it is for sure that some other person can figure out a way to exploit it for their own benefit. If you have a really good biometric lock it seems like that would be awfully hard to defeat though. In theory only one person can use a lock like that or only the people it is programmed to allow to use the thing can.
