Years ago people installed kill switches to thwart theft of old school key vehicles....looks like things haven't progressed with electronic push button start switches.
Thanks, I'm hopeful I can have a vehicle when I get back. I'm currently out of town for business and I get back tomorrow.....Stolen 24hrs before I get home lol....I'm just glad I didn't find out about it tomorrow when I'm in the terminal parking lot trying to find my car lolThat sucks, dude. Hope it somehow works out for you.
It really is pitifulHorrible... sorry to hear.... Was the car in a parking garage or open air lot? Wonder if the thieves had the audacity to pay your parking receipt, probably had to in order to get thru gated lot?
I've mentioned before, they way that 'Uconnect' and everything is inter-related now... I cannot fathom it being difficult at all for Dodge to develop the programming to have in the car to enter a multiple digit pin to lock/unlock the ignition.... or to even upgrade and release an update to the vehicles to cover that, pitiful...
Do you have insurance?So have MOPAR owners talked to a lawyer about this? This is ridiculous. I know I'm not the first one who has posted about this.
they do have footage, they have the suspects face as he was leaving the airport exit. I’m sure they have more. But they were about 5-6 hours head start by the time I notified police that the cam Guardian alarm was triggered.Sorry to hear about your loss... I am curious with all the CCTVs at an Airport the Police could not get more info on the suspects? You have time and date, that makes it super simple to review footage...
Either way, car thieves will always find a way to circumvent the factory anti-theft systems... Kill switch's, audile alarms, Lojack, etc... are all good countermeasures, but the if they really want it bad enough, they will come with a flatbed and haul it away.
You were saying?Seems like Dodge/Chrysler and Khai are having a high number of thefts... I do not hear much about Ford or Chevys?
Some insurance companies are not insuring Khai's...
I think I will put my 80lb bull dog to sleep in the DD... They will get a vicious surprise!
There is a known security issue on the Durango that Stallantis hasn't fixed. Thieves literally can plug into the car and create their own key fob with hardware that's easily obtainable and drive off in under 5 mins without the alarm going off. Might sound funny to sue them, but the city of Rochester NY is sueing Kia for the exact same issue.Do you have insurance?
A lawyer? You wanna sue Stellantis because your car got stolen? Or maybe DFW?
That sucks. Hopefully when your rig is recovered you can still arrange the IGLA install promptly. While my DD is not an SRT or HC, I have read about thieves stealing other DD models, so I decided to go Ravelco theft deterrent. Once the theft deterrent is installed you will have piece of mind that your rig will be where you parked it, unless of course the schmucks flat bed it away, but I will take those odds.Well, literally I'm a few days away from getting an IGLA installed and my DD392 got jacked form the airport in DFW.
UConnect Guardian sent me an email at 4:40 am this morning that the theft alarm got triggered. I called police and they confirmed that the SUV left the airport at 4:50 AM. That's 5 min to get it started then the 5 min it takes to drive out.
Police do have a picture of the suspect that stole it (Plus side of it being in an airport).
