How can I prevent my car from getting hacked?

I've been reading more and more articles about the possibility of hackers turning their attention to new cars. Is this something I really need to be concerned about? What do I need to do to keep my car safe from hackers?
From my understanding the hack vulnerability was discovered on the U-connect touchscreen systems that were installed on Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep vehicles. If you own one of the vehicles that was part of Chrysler's security recall, there's a firmware update that you or a dealers can install which should get rid of the venerability.
