Keep Thieves From Stealing Your New Car

The rate that some cars are stolen is very alarming and disconcerting. While many steps can be taken to reduce the chance of having your vehicle stolen, sometimes just owning a certain make and model can change the likelihood.

Here are a few tips that you can use to decrease the chances of being a victim of a car thief:

Never leave your car running unattended

Never leave any keys in hide-a-key boxes

Never leave any keys in the car or ignition

Never leave valuables in plain view

Always park in well-lighted, high-traffic areas

Never leave any keys inside a locked garage

Always roll up your windows and lock the car

Install a device that locks the steering wheel, column, and brakes.

Purchase a vehicle theft tracking/security system

If your vehicle is stolen, report it to the police immediately.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety and the Highway Loss Data Institute states the model years 2003 through 2005 Cadillac Escalade EXT and Cadillac Escalade 4dr have a theft claim rate seven to eight times the average for all cars.
