This is my home state, Michigan USA and Detroit is known as the carjacking city of the US. After immobilisers and GPS systems have proved effective deterrents for car thieves, they have turned them into dangerous armed carjackers. My honourable friends on this thread have been mentioning immobilisers to be installed on the new Toyota Corolla to prevent car theft. Just watch this video to make up your own mind about what happens when immobilisers deter car thieves from taking your car away. It can even cost you your life.

Several years back, at around 10 PM, a brand new Honda Civic was carjacked by an armed man in front of Harolds Store in F-7 Markaz Islamabad. My cook was there when it happened and he saw it all occur as it was done at the point of a gun after the driver of the car was getting into it. The driver had just bought some things from the store to see his new car being sped away under the gun.
Guys, be prepared for the worst. Our country Pakistan has turned into a meat grinder with terrorist attacks and lawlessness.
A few days back, a bomb blast occurred in F-6 Markaz in front of Shaheen Chemists near United Bakery. I lived in front of that area (F-6/3) for 17 years and it is the area where the whole of Pakistan is controlled by heavy-weight bureaucrats. The gravity of the situation is very grave.
The situation is not as bad as it looks from outside.
