Q: Thieves ripped out ignition

asked by on

My car was recently stolen and recovered. The thieves ripped out the ignition and used up all the gas.

The steering column may need to be replaced, if damaged too badly. I recommend having a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, run an inspection, and replace the steering column, if deemed necessary.
