With motor vehicle theft topping the charts as the #1 property crime in the U.S., LoJack fills a clear market need for an effective stolen vehicle recovery solution. The LoJackå¨ Stolen Vehicle Recovery System provides car owners with peace of mind knowing that if their vehicle is stolen, they have the best chance of getting it back.
LoJack is the most common brand of stolen vehicle tracking devices. You can find more information, as well as order these online, at http://www.lojack.com/.
The idea behind Lojack is, when your car is stolen, the police contact Lojack and the vehicle location is sent to the police and they find it for you. You may be thinking of Onstar. Onstar is constantly on, and if you lose your key you can contact them by phone, identify yourself, and they'll help you.
The answer should be very obvoius: CALL THE POLICE! They will take a description of your vehicle and they'll put it in the database of stolen cars. IF you have an auto tracking device such as lojack, give them your VIN and they'll activate your lojack and track your car on a computer and they should be able to find it.
on star: dont pay, turn off,disconect power, refuse service lojack: vehicle powered system has a backup battery; self-powered system operates on its own battery, disconnecting power isn't the best solution. Best to try and find and then remove unit.
yes if it has a g.p.s.
Situation dependent. They could find it on the first day they look for it, or it could take a while. If the vehicle is at the address listed on the loan, expect them to find it quickly. If you hide the vehicle and claim not to know its location, expect it to be reported stolen.
Ask the Policeman "is ma car stolen mate"
Not to my knowledge. The lender cant say its stolen because they LET you take it from their possession. You havent said its stolen OR you would have a police report to show it was. So, it's NOT stolen, you are hiding it to hinder repossession. Hope that's not a felony in your state. My contracts state that if the borrower takes the vehicle out of state when in default that I could report the vehicle stolen. I never have tried, but I did pay an attorney to draft them up for me years ago. In wild and lawless Nevada...
You pretty much can't. In order to disable it you would have to physically have the LoJack unit removed from the car. Nearly impossible to find as there are 30 different potential locations for the unit and owners aren't even allowed to know where it is located. I work for LoJack :)
Depends on where you live, mileage on the stolen vehicle, condition, & accessories. Go to www.nada.com to find the value.
It could be, yes.
