    Default Car stolen from garage

    Mod Edit: Thread moved to correct section.

    Yesterday morning, my cousin's almost new gli got stolen for his own garage. The garage was properly locked and the car had steering lock and tracker installed. The thieves (3 or 4 assumptions) jumped in from garage's gate. They entered the car by breaking the rear window and chopped the steering lock then the gate lock.

    At 6:30 am, the tracker company called saying that ur car is crossing Sagian Pull so they have turned off the car. In shock he checked the garage for his car then called 1 5 and motorway police. After half an hour the tracker company called saying that they have stopped receiving signals from ur car.

    The thing is, my cousin's mother was awake that time but she did not hear a sound. How were the thieves able to bypass the tracker? If tracker is so easily bypassed then whats the use of tracker? One thing to note that he has two more cars (alto and cultus) with alarm systems, did thieves aim for big car or car without alarm system?

    This means that how much so ever you try to protect your car with tracker, steering lock, your car is not safe, even inside your own house.

    The worst part was only the 50% of the car was insured that mean he would get only 8 lacs back.

    I am a bit worried because i also have the new model corolla with tracker and fully insured. I would really like if someone could give me suggestion regarding his big loss, like this type of event ever happened before and was the car recovered. Please if someone can help or give information regarding this type of event please don't hesitate. Is there any chances of his car being recovered and who should he contact?

    Car description:
    Corolla GLI 2010 model, Dark silver colour.

    Thanks.

    same thing happened to me as well last year. they cut off the main gate's lock and get into the car (xli 2009) by breaking the quarterglass in the same way .... but i was lucky enough that the thieves were not able to cut the cluthbar and my car was not stolen.

    Clutch bar is available from 15 police ... i got mine from liaqat bagh 15 police center for Rs. 1550 (american lock included)

    *********Another method to protect your car************
    First of all recite Ayat-ul-Kursi.
    1)Buy a device(Pump probably) to fill air in tyres.
    2)Note the tyre's pressure.
    3)Flat all the tyres(By not bursting them of course).
    4)Leave the car.
    5)Next time fill recommended amount of air in your tires w.r.t pressure.
    I stated this procedure after reading the 'tire taking out method' which is thousand times inconvenient than this.

    1) buy a honda or anything else (this will reduce the probability by 50% of car being stolen)
    2) do 100% value insurance of car from the best firms like Adam Jee[/QUOTE]

    HONDA does not suit me, as i travel to SITE INDUSTRIAL AREA, SHERSHAH etc, where the raod are pathetic and only TOYOTA can sustain it..

    can u suggest any good ISLAMIC INSURANCE

    2) write an email to Toyota Japan, indicating that after spending 1.6 million (20 thousand dollars) we are still not getting the basic features like immobilized, thus raising eyebrows weather Toyota itself wants thefts to happen. If even 50% of us are able to write an email, that could make a difference.

    3) whenever you buy a car, make sure you give appropriate sadqa in lieu of the purchase. If your intent is right, InshAllah you will be protected from the theft.

    I guess no theft prevention system is flawless but not having an immobilizer in a car costing so much is criminal negligence..

    City, Xli, Gli, Altis all deserve to have immobilizers installed.

    I have Corolla (previous model) and it doesn't have any Tracker, Insurance, GSM alarm, Chor switch or anything for that matter. I park my car outside home all the time and so far nothing has happened thanks to Allah
    I think the only way to protect your car in enclosed space like home, garage e.t.c is to use RFID based system. Although nothing can give 100% protection but I guess after reading all replies and going through this system in my head, this seems to be the most effective although a little expensive.

    It's simple
    You will have a tag connected to your car for e.g. on bumper or any other location. No need to go hi-fi and simply stick it on your car using tape.

    Then you will have an RFID reader somewhere near (probably inside a locked room). One antenna will be connected to that reader which will be facing the tag. The reader itself will be connected to a computer.
    Let's say at 9pm you turn on all the devices. Now the computer will tell reader to take reading of tag every 1 second. If for any reason reading is not taken then turn on alarm which could be a simple wav file on your PC blasted through the connected speakers.
    So basically as soon as the car moves or a thief tries to remove tag or thief tries to remove antenna, the reader will be unable to take reading and hence alarm will go off.
    But this is primary function. What if there is no electricity? Well you will have to use UPS then. But what if the computer or reader itself is down due to some malfunction? Well your PC will also be sending alert to remote hosting server about last time reading taken. And on your hosting server you can have a simple PHP cron job checking if it has been more than 5 seconds since last reading came? If yes then send an alert through twitter which you will receive on your mobile.

    I have skipped minute technical details but this is the whole idea.

    sad to hear about your loss...
    the best remedy that i came up with is get a big guard dog... it will atleast give you a warning call incase someone wants to make an attempt... plus people will think atleast twice before even planning the theft...

    Keep buying the cheap substandard sh1* and you might as well offer your money on a plate to the thieves. I was in Canada a few weeks back and went to a Toyota dealership to buy a Corolla 2012. It had an immobilizer, dual airbags, side curtains, mud flaps, cruise control, CD player, bluetooth, all floor mats (regular as well as winter), a rubber tray for the truck (trunk protector is a rubber mat shaped as the floor of the trunk with raised edges so if you spill anything it stays in the tray), rear bumper protector (a plastic strip that protects the paint of the rear bumper as you pull out things from the trunk..a heavy suitcase etc. The car had tons of bells and whistles and guess what??? the price we paid was less than Can $16000!!!

    If Altis here gets stolen so frequently the customers should stop buying it and the company would have to introduce/offer the immobilizer and other features that are available. It is no rocket science. Till such time we continue to line up and even pay an extra to buy their substandard cars why would they bother producing something better?Car stolen from garage -412220
