Hello All :)

9 posts in this topic

Hi all, Thought I would register here and hopefully gets some advice from people that maybe have had the great joy of recently having a car stolen.

So, I bought my shiny new fiesta in August and loved it, ok it drunk a lot of petrol but I can live with that. But then about a month ago my little car was taken from outside my house, why I was sitting at home.

I still had my keys and no glass was smashed, so not 100% how it got taken.

My issue is what can I do to stop this happening again in an not so expensive way?

Thanks in advance.

Sam :)

No, I didn't have an alarm fitted, was unaware that there wasn't one already factory fitted from fords.

So I need to look into getting one fitted, for a decent price. Either that or maybe a tracker and steering lock.

Do any of you recommend anything?

Any steering lock that is Thatcham approved will go a long way to making the thieving little beggars look elsewhere.
