Tips for Protecting Your Vehicle from Auto Theft
When you purchased your new Toyota or Honda vehicle from us, you invested a lot of money and will rely on it to take you wherever you need to go. Unfortunately, thieves are on the prowl and may be coveting your new Toyota or Honda. Here are some tips to help prevent it from being stolen:
Tip #1: Always Lock Your Vehicle
This is a no-brainer, but locking your vehicle is one of the best ways to protect it. Unfortunately, thieves are getting smarter and have electronic devices that can prevent your vehicle from locking when you use your remote-operated key. Make sure to click your lock button a few times and pull all your door handles for verification.
Tip #2: Keep Your Vehicle’s Windows Completely Closed
During the sweltering summer like to keep our vehicle’s windows open to allow for a little airflow. However, this is an extremely bad idea! Leaving your vehicle’s windows rolled down—even just a crack—is an easy invite for theft!
Tip #3: Never Leave Your Vehicle Running and Unattended
Ohio is no stranger to cold and harsh winters, and many of us like to warm up our vehicle in the morning before heading to work. It is not necessary to do this – and it just provides an easy opportunity for a thief to just get in and drive away while you are finishing your morning coffee.
