Hopefully, if it's recovered, they find it on good condition.

Damn, sorry to hear this! So they broke the window, do we know if they drove it away or towed it? Does the Guardian still work when the car is off?

Sorry to hear that, wish you the best outcome! I think the Guardian should work while parked. I've checked my location while parked when I still had subscription. It's sometimes not the best depending on signal like in an underground garage.

I''m also Sorry to hear that!

There have been reports of the Challenger/Charger Scat Packs/SRT's getting stolen and/or car-jacked in the Chicagoland area. They take them because they are fast and can outrun the Police (that's what the news said).

I've been giving thoughts of selling Ruby just for that fact. I don't want to get car-jacked at gun point because of what I drive, but don't want to miss out on enjoying having a Nice vehicle. It's kind of a double edged sword and a dilemma. The World is a Scary place nowadays!

I've had thoughts of replacing her with an older Big Block automatic El Camino (1964-1970 model years) because I'd like a pickup truck and would miss having a car with some muscle to it.

With the El Camino, it's kind of like a reverse mullet............Party in the front and business in the back! :D

Sorry about the hi-jack.

My 2018 Hellcat came with LoJack. Dealer installed I guess. Did perchance the dealer install some similar system in your car?

Why not list the license plate to look for and area it was last seen in? Anything unique visually?
If mine was taken as angry as I’d be, I wouldn’t want it back after some scumbag had it.

License plate number and the last 4 or 5 VIN digits. The license plates may have been tossed already and stolen plates put on the car.

This sucks. I'm sorry that you have to go through this.

Looks like you're going to need a new driver's side window at minimum. Talking from experience, be careful what you wish for. Sometimes recovering a stolen vehicle is not to your benefit.

I was going to say vin # but don’t know if he’d list it. If he wants it back, do anything to help make it happen. My friends car came back with bullets holes after they used it to rob a bank, there also was a bunch of stolen credit cards in there too.

Sorry, to hear that I hope you get your Sp back. But, are you near the port of Chicago in case they ship it to Canada and strip it is that a common thing in Chicago. Or maybe they’re going to use it for a heist it’s probably hidden ina an abandon warehouse. Hopefully they’re going to get the idiots who took your car.

Wow. I kinda thought you cant steal them and drive off because of the security in the key fob. But then it could have been easily towed or put onto a truck and sold for parts ....

So sorry, that it had to happen to you! What a nightmare it must be.

Hope it turns out alright!

I probably should amp up security more. Guess it won't be a bad idea to put those wheel boots. At the end of the day if they really want it they'd get it some how, it's a matter of adding as much deterrents and hoping they steal someone else's car. Same idea I guess for homes

the flame thrower one is a good option

If it's an automatic I understand the thieves can break a window to get in & release the trans parking pawl from the console access panel & push the car into the street and/or tow it from either end.
