DAMN!!! I cant imagine what insurance costs out there. It seems like you cant drive it for a week without someone taking it from you. Another member said the cops told him the reason they are popular is cause both the port, and the Mexican border are so close. So it doesnt take anything to make one disappear quick.

Sorry to hear about your second loss. Hope that it shows up. If I can remember correctly, they found your 1st Escalade on blocks, right?? I think I remember you posting pictures. Maybe I'm mistaking for another incident.

That sucks bro!! Im so sorry to hear that mine was stolen last week at the West Covina mall, but I was fortunate to find it all in one piece. What mall did they steal it from?? Did you have an alarm??

If mine gets stolen I hope it's never found! I wouldn't want it back after someone ripped it all apart.

thats why when my 1st escalade was recovered,i didnt want it back...so after it was fixed and returned to me, i traded it in on my chrysler SRT8.a year later i traded that in for this ext.so if they find,fix and return the ext...im gonna get rid of it.trust me when i say it doesnt feel the same knowing these punks where pimpin/cruisin in your ride.....it felt tainted to me.so i dont know if i should get another lade.some say i shouldnt be a dumbass n get a 3rd,and i should have learned my lesson the first time.

man i feel your pain, i had my 2004 stolen twice before i upgraded to the 2007, first time just had a regular alarm, 2nd time i had lojack with early warning, by the time lojack notified me and i called the cops, my 2004 was on dummy tires in east L A, took them 1 hr to find it from the time my lojack early warning told me my ride had moved..1 hr was all they needed, in L A these guys are pro's lojack onstar dont mean crap......i dont even drive my 2007 to L A lol damm shame

Man sorry to hear about this unfortunate event. I am in SOCAL too (Orange County) and this story scares the heck out of me.

I was always under the impression that Onstar would be able to track the vehicle like Lojack, but guess that is not the case.

05-30-07, 09:35 AM
i was thinkin the same...what a waste.so next time im gonna add a better alarm(with a true starter disable) and lojack to help out.

On star is useless, when mine was stolen the thief ripped the Onstar antenna off. I've been looking at alarms and Viper has a pretty good GPS tracking system for $10 a month. You can go online ans see where your car is at all time.

Over Christmas they stole over 40 escalades, Tahoe's and big Suv's at the shops at Mission Viejo at the 5 and Crown Valley. They all ended up in Mexico. I paid for the Lo jack when it was new and hope to never have to use it. Sorry for you loss.

That is plain awful. Sorry, I suppose simply doesn't cut it.

After reading this post, ands picking up my new Lade later today, I became concerned about what insurance might be costing me now. Turns out only 80 bucks a year more for the 07 Lade than my 06 SRX here in Michigan. Hopefully (for me), that means Lades are not snatched up here as much as California. Plus I am getting the "boring" chrome 18" wheels - maybe that will be a deterent too.....

Again, my condolences.

Well ,the bigger the wheels you have on the lade the bigger the lade is a target by theives.funny thing for all to find out,call your insurance person and ask them if your lade is stolen will new parts be put on or will the insurance company want used parts?i say that cuz sure enough...used part were to be put on.i was thinkin why they hell would i want used parts?this is a escalade not a old pick up truck.find out before it happends to you.

What kind of insurance do you have?

Synergetic

Make sure you have the 'extra coverage' for customized vehicles that insures a specific aftermarket value. If you spent $12,000 on 26" rims, you will receive that amount in return in the case they are stolen. Otherwise, you'll be out of luck when it happens to you. I learned the hard way by not requesting a higher aftermarket value.

i have state farm,but not all agents are the same..mine tells me the ins and outs ...so that i know how to word things correctly.insurance companies will screw you,we all know that so do what you can to protect yourself.
