I can unlock a steering wheel lock with a bolt cutter. The real solution is to just disable the remote unlock function. Leave remote lock working, though. Of course it would be better if the cheapo car makers had left the key locks on the passenger side doors instead of being so cheap. Many times all I want to do is unlock the passenger side door and put things in, I don't want to unlock all doors in some of those areas that I do have to visit on occasion. Of course, disabling the remote unlock function is probably not possible with the way the system is designed now.

Can't you unlock a steering wheel lock with a bump key?

That's why I NEVER leave my car unattended without a steering wheel lock. Even if some mutt managed to get an electronic copy of my car key, he wouldn't get very far if he tried to steal the car.
