Nice Honda? Are you looking at the new Ridgelines or the Accords? I don’t think people really steal them much like they used to with the older ones.

Depends on few variables of course. Insight in Topeka or Type R in Dallas?

Depends on your neighborhood too. I park mine outside 60% of the time but broke thieves never see it because they live far away. If I lived in a less nice area I’d worry too much. I’d also save that money and focus getting out of shitty area.

always park older hondas in the street..never use alarms either.. dont even lock the doors...
best deterrent by far

This is the most logical and well said answer. I never understood why people would take such a risk knowing everyone around them they would be a target, yet will build and put money into something that could be taken away with a flick of a switch. Its like building a 2 story home with the latest technology in the center of the hood and not expect a break in. Anyway.....
Im in socal. honestly it depends on your area. I lived in the boonies and no one never bothered because i didnt live in a demographic young area per say. However i was not being stupid though. But If you dont have a garage, You have other options. Example the portable tent with warranty.
tent stuff

I would sell your Honda on Craigslist and see if you can hustle on there. Just say itís non smoking and adult driven and you changed the oil every 10k. People believe it all the time.

GEH are still stolen alot out here, I wouldn't own one without a garage.

just noticed OP is from peoria, az! No, don't get a honda unless your going to keep it in garage and keep full coverage insurance. Also dont take it to movies, grocery store or even leave it unattended anywhere outside. Good luck.

I always wanted to rig up my vents to spray acid, like the stuff Indian suitors use to melt the face of a reluctant bride to be. Would have to figure out a way that it'll go off automatically, and only when being driven by a thief, but that's a law suit well worth dealing with.

Also, what kind of thieves are we talking about? You have a lot of Honda dudes that scam and steal, or your typical car hoppers looking for loose change and condom wrappers?

Lol I havenít looked but has OP responded?

sup doe, my carfax report here. bought car (98 Integra GS) in Feb, jacked in March when I parked outside. This happened maybe a few days after I installed coilovers lol

recovered via LoJack, cops located the car parked in the thief's backyard, while he was sitting in the car. (on the police report)

California though. I parked my hatch outside for 2 years and never had anyone bother it. It was in a decently nice area in a Little Rock suburb though.

Both cars are now in the garage now. Mainly because I moved and live close to a main road (car hoppers are the only concern here even then), and Iíve got the space now

I'm in the Tucson area and leave mine parked outside in the hopes that someone will steal it. No luck yet.

****** common sense 101....

there were times where I accidentally

- left the garage open over night
- left my truck disarmed
- left my car disarmed
- left my front door unlocked (but the house alarm was armed)
-left my back door unlocked (again, house alarm was armed)

And didn't lose ANYTHING.

Didn't live in a shitty area, 20 minutes drive from the next town and an hour from the city. Honda gets stripped?????

It's still a thing, previously it was because there was good money in it which attracted people to be scumbags. These days there is **** money in it but crack and addiction mean that **** doesn't matter anyway, 20 cents is 20 cents towards the next rock. I have friends that have had their cars broken into and the ignition jacked, GF's car got stolen and joyrided. **** people, it's old tech and easy to steal so it gets stolen.
