Probably for the best as it saves them waking you up with a sharp object pointing at your face...
Maybe... but then again the average petty car thief probably isn't going to be skimming or intercepting a key fob signal, so will probably break in and point the pointy thing at you demanding the fob anyway...
The golf in particular is targeted by gangs, I'm afraid. It's one of the top 10 of most stolen cars anyway, I'm sure you'll be fine.
I know I know... I have actually been a bit edgy since the day I got it :/ (it's not keyless in any case). Thought about a tracker, but that won't prevent it getting nicked, would just lead me to my trashed car. Or a killswitch? I dunno, if someone is determined enough they can steal any car, I'll relax about it soon!
His location says Shropshire I’m sure his Golf will be fine. If he lived in London, Bradford, Birmingham, Manchester. Liverpool etc then he should worry.
I was pleasantly reassured when my premium went down when I moved out of Stoke
A quick Google search:
David Jamieson, the police and crime commissioner for the West Midlands, said the number of car thefts in the West Midlands Police force area had doubled in two years – as thieves exploit the technology to steal vehicles from driveways and car parks.
Yeah but there's West Midlands and there's West Midlands...
Traded in my GTC for something a bit more sensible....
Isn't a GTC a 3 door Astra? You make it sound like you just got rid of an Elise
It’s a 3 door Astra J. The new Astra is a lot bigger inside especially the rear. With 3 kids and a dog it all helps... lol
I was surprised how much bigger this is in the rear. It’s meant to have more room than the original insignia. I can sit in the back and have plenty of legroom.
3 kids and a dog and you haven't bought some utterly pointless pinnacle of compromise SUV. Bravo, well done you! Rear leg room does look quite spacious actually.
With 3 kids and a dog where does the luggage go?
I suspect the baggage goes on the front passenger seat.
In the boot, with the dog. Partitions exist. That's what we (parents) used to do anyway.
Wow, feel sorry for the dog and the fact everyone will only have space for one change of underpants.
Isn't this like your third Vauxhall in about a year?
Roof Box or Wifes car.... My eldest is at boarding school so only comes in holidays so most of the time it's just the two kids and the dog who will sit on the seat if we need to fill the boot.
Something like that I get a nice discount so have changed a few times. This one will be staying for a while....
