There are tow trucks that can snag a car in seconds... so of course, it can be stolen. And stripped and parted out in a hurry too. Can it be driven away? Prolly not, but that shouldn't make you feel all that much safer.

Alarms are worthless to me. They annoy people in parking lots more than anything else. As pointed out, if a thief wants your car they will get it. Making a vehicle tougher to steal than other vehicles nearby is a better way to go. Steering wheel clubs aren't fool proof either but thieves will opt for an easier target if available.

I love the trunk monkey :D

My alarm is ok, but the control module likes to have fits and it's embarrasing, especially at 0530 in the morning when trying to go to work. I'm fighting the guy at the dealership to get a new one.

Alarms are really more of a PIA than anything, unless you have LoJack, then it's worth it.

We have no alarm just Lojack. It will only work for us as long as the car stays out of Mexico and since we are about 10 minutes from the border we might get screwed on that if our car was ever stolen
