:thumbsup: Well said.If you dont want everyone who looks at this thread to call bullshit, then I suggest you reword the question to "What can I do to prevent my chipped key deville from getting stolen".
Trust me, theres no way that "how easy can you steal a deville" doesnt look obvious.
As far as your question, if a person wants something bad enough, they will get it. A chip in a key is not gonna stop a determined and experienced thief. Theres plenty of ways around it which I wont get into. It also depends ALOT on what year of Deville your talking about.
Couldn't have said it better... Folks who have connects will lift you car and take it somewhere where they can have all day to play with your car. But on a serious note cars get stolen all the time its a fact. If they want it they will get it... Be more concerned about people breakin in your car. If some one wants your car they will get, rather its by gun point or if someone lifts you car. File the calim and get your check and charge it to the game, some stuff is outta your hands.A smart thief would take the car with a flatbed like a repo guy and then play with it later. They'll be in and out in 5 minutes and you'll never even know.
Extremely easy. I used to do it all the time. Whoops. Got to go; the warden does not like me using his computer!!Really..., how difficult is it to steal a mid model deville with the chip in the key???
I mean it's not like i want to steal one because i already own one just don't want it to get STOLEN.
any help would be great.
Had my pride and joy stolen back when I was 17--a beautiful and fast 1969 Dodge Coronet Superbee. Drove it to the Mall, went in to get something, 15 minutes tops, came back out, car was gone. The Police recovered the car in a nasty, gang infested neighborhood called Inglewood (suburb of Los Angeles). They stole my stereo, all my cassettes (remember those?), the wheels, the battery, then smashed the side into something. The mofoes! I rebuilt the car to better than it was before and got the last laugh. I hope the bastards died in some ditch somewhere in the hands of their fellow gangbangers.
Yeah. Car thieves suck!
If you live in a bad neighborhood, chances are good your car is a target. And from the way you describe it, it looks like a nice juicy target. I was going to say, the best defense is to make your car look like it isn't worth stealing but that's too late now! :lol: Here's what I would suggest however:
1) When you park your car, use one of those steering wheel locks. It won't completely protect your car but it will take the thieves longer to jack into. So they may just decide to move on to an easier target.
2) Do you have an alarm in it? Make sure it is 100% reliable (doesn't give you false alarms). If it has gone off during the night, you bet your ass someone is trying to see if YOU are paying attention. If this has happened, go outside and check. Let the bastards know you are listening.
3) NEVER leave any valuables in the car. NEVER. If you must, put it in the trunk out of sight.
4) When you're cruising, think "stealth mode". I know. It's tough when you're 18 and you want attention. But you don't want the wrong attention! Run in stealth mode by not playing your booming stereo loud so that thieves will hear and want it. Maybe turn off those neon lights when you're in a questionable area.
5) Don't park your car out of sight. Try to always park in a well lit area near a lot of people. And NEVER leave it unlocked, even for a second--like when you go and get cash from the ATM or buy a drink from the local 7-11.
6) Get insurance if you don't already.
