Live with it
It is extremely scary to know that technological threats can harm our safety. Apart from monopolizing our moneys, now our daily commute could be put to risk.

It's already way too dangerous for that if you ask me!

From what I read it sounds like you do need to do something in order to compromise the security to get the data rather than just being able to obtain it. So I think it does count as an attack, although obviously the key point is remove data after use if syncing a personal device to a borrowed/hire car

Misnomer
Can it really be considered an "attack" if this is merely a result of unerased data leftover from someone synching their phone to a rental car? I call ciickbait shenanigans.
