    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.

    I have sold my Xli 2010 and bought a new city yesterday, the reason only was thieves are not letting it go, The mostly stolen vehicle now a days is Corolla in Islamabad, don't know about other cities, it's being stolen more than Mehran's.
    The reason which i knew from nearest police station was Corollas are being smuggled to Afghanistan and there they get registered and legal.
    That is the only reason i had to sell it and shift to Honda City, this is really sad, but this was the only reason i had to sell my Corolla !!

    The things thieves don't like...
    1. Car parked in the open, we're people can see them.
    2. Dogs small or large
    3. Cameras
    4. Well lit places
    5. And we're there's no clear route out.
    add more pls....?

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

    Thanks.
    I have been a victim myself as almost similar incidence happened to me same week in Lahore..
    May car was Corolla Gli 2012, bought brand new in January
    On 04-09-2012, I got a call from tracker company at 5:26 am saying that the battery of my car has been disconnected, i was sleeping, got up and rushed towards my car porch, car was not there and main gate was open .. I called the tracker company back they said that the tracker system has been tampered and the car is no more in their system,, i was shocked on their reply, i checked my mobile and the last sms i received from tracker company showed the location almost 100 mts away from my home, i went there , the full tracker device alongwith broken lock of my main gate was thrown there on road, i called 15 and they did the routine KHANA PURI...
    The recovery incharge of tracker company also came on the spot and id like to share with all what he said" ham ne aapko inform kar diya tha, hum ne apni duty poori kar di hai??" what the f**k,,, i said is it that easy to remove tracker system which ur company installs in 3 hours?? reply was" chor hum se ziada advance hain" i said then why r we paying u " sir g hamara rizq laga hua hai" Can u people believe it??
    Unfortunately the car was uninsured as i was using the tracker of this company (Tracking World) in my other cars also.. since last 6-7 years and i had blind trust on them but after all this incidence i advise everyone to not trust any ******** by any tracker company,, the only solution is comprehensive Insurance...
    Points came to our notice after discussion with friends and policemen
    1- Such incidences are taking place mostly in posh areas
    2- Take Place between 2-6 am
    3- The number one target car is corolla 2012 and then previous models..

    Almost every victim receives calls from tribal areas with a offer to buy back the car but there have been incidences where cars are not handed offer to the owners after receiving ransom,, owners have themselves been trapped and kidnapped... Police is also involved with these gangs and provides ur secret information to the miscreants... May Allah Save us....

    Guys I worked out how the thieves usually act and here is my analysis.

    Trackers are useless, so are steering locks and any sort of mechanical locks inside the car.
    Chor switches only help if u are not a heavy sleeper.

    I did find a solution for some cars specially those with FWD and disc brakes installed. Saw these devices for bikes mainly but I have seen these in UK for those who dont pay parking tickets. This is bypass proof and u need a motorized saw to get through it, means it makes massive noise. However if a robber drives ur car with this ur car will get f**ked. Major brake rotor damage and possible suspension damage.

    http://static.traderscity.com/board/...-lock-lb-3.jpg

    I am working on a system using wateen Wimax tech to secure cars, Wimax never gets blocked even if u have GSM jammers. Only problem is that Wimax setups have limited range so if u live in Peshawar and ur car is taken to hilly areas or out of city areas then u cant track it.
    Another problem is that Wimax needs alot of power along with a PC that is so its wiring is easy to detect and cut.

    ULTIMATE SOLUTION:

    Wimax + Chor switch + Mechanical Locks + Wheel Shanks (When u park at night)

    The guy who posted that u can remove engine components like the good old days please be specific.
    I too live in Phase 4 and I have a 2012 model GLi hence do tell me any immediate security options.

    Also I have noticed honda locks are never tampered with. I have a steermatic 06 and it was parked next to a neighbours toyota Hilux, and old model, but his car got stolen and mine was right next to it. I guess toyota is doing this intentionally to get massive numbers in terms of market share since the new cars that roll of the line go to customers with insurance claims and to those who recently got their cars stolen.

    Speaking of steermatic does anyone know what the key hole near the gearbox is for??

    I would too but insurance takes ages to sort through and tons of paperwork.
    Better to be prepared and count on ur own security measures so if they fail u don't feel bad about not doing ur level best.
