    I've only had one person try to break into my Escalade while I was in the store. He was foiled due to me having a silent alarm that rings my cell phone. Of course, I think he was more startled by me showing up swinging than I was with him attempting to break in my truck. No damage was done, however. Funny, everything in my truck is coded to only work in my truck so taking anything out of it would have been very stupid (not to mention that he could not steal the truck due to satellite keys and, of course, OnStar).

    Some VW's have coded things like the stereo when taken out of the car, you have to have a dealer recode it for you before you can use it in any car again ;) So once you remove it from harness in car its useless unless you have a dealer buddy.

    -edit- I imagine the salellite keys go along w/ onstar making it possible to track the vehicle :)
     
  9. My sisters boyfriends Golf was screwdrivered under the lock 3 times by the same people while he was in university, he even put a metal plate under the whole to deter it from happening again. Now he's sold that car and has a Corrado (loverly car :D) which he doesnt take anywhere near there!

    A satellite key works by having a radio transmitter embedded into your key. When you insert your key into the ignition, the key transmits a signal to the cars processor. The ID on the key is verified from the dealer database via satellite (satellite transmitter is in the car). If the key's ID matches, the satellite will return a signal to the car allowing it to start. If it doesn't, the car will flash the security light and not start. The whole process takes about a second. Mercedes was the first company to use the technology. Then followed Ford and now GM.

    Well if they actually gave 5 years minimum hard labor to all thieves, burgulars, drug dealers then it would stop 90% of crime straight away.

    I don't own nor drive any vehicle so I can only symphasise with ya'll

    I thought it was a bit simpler that that. Just a transponder in the key which talks to the immobiliser in the car. If the car doesn't recognise the key the car won't start!

    So true.The age of political correctness dictates that we are no longer responsible for our own behaviour.Its always someone elses fault(see Oprah Winfrey).Ergo,no more punishment to suit the crime.Ergo,whats to deter criminal activity?If enough peep buy into this kinda logic(or lack of it),maybe I really can sell that beach front property in Arizona. :p

    Reminds me of when I was 16 a couple of friends of mine and I were coming out of a mall here in miami and we saw some punk a$$hole trying to break into my buddy's truck (Ford Bronco)...lets just say that guy will think twice...then again, then look around for the owner before he tries that agin. He did not get arrested, what my friend did to him was enough.

    Well a lout (thug) who had been convicted of burgulary and had 651 other accounts (other burgularies he held his hands upto, thus being for the old bill to clear them up) taken into consideration got 200 hours of community service for his conviction.

    Why ohhh why must you ask, well the lout and his solicitior (lawyer) argued that when he was 3 years old his mum and dad took him to the seaside (beach) and he asked for an ice cream (as he saw other children eating some at the sea side). They refused to buy the lout one that was his excuse for doing the crimes he did.

    I hearby wish death to all politically correct people by an old English tradition. Tying their hands to a horse their feet to another and sending the Horses in opposite directions.

    I understand that some people don't know right from wrong and should get a second chance after serving sometime for their crime(s), thus on release should know better, what the hell is the World (Western world) coming to.

    I just thought I would add that in Britain 100 people are responsible for 1 million crimes that happen each year, from drugs, muggings, theft, burgularies, car theft, etc.

    Take them out of the equation and we could have a crime free society where we can get along just fine.

    Drug addicts commit the most crimes in Britain, certain drugs are banned for a reason, a very good reason as they have the potential to ruin peoples lives etc..

    Just think the amount of crimes a drug addict commits, to sometimes support a £700 a day habbit. Burgulary at least 4 a day, shopliffting, at least 5, muggings at least 2, each day every day.

    You can't legalise class A drugs like cocaine, imagine someone on coke driving a car to work, or a school bus, public transport, sheeeeet carnaige.

    Crime in Britain costs me and you, the tax payer an extra £2,500 py, in extra policing, insurance premiums, having to have burgular alarms, car alarms, fraud technology, stolen credit ID's, the list could go on...and.........on and onnnnnn......

    The problem is that 99% of drug users do not commit crimes.
