What Steps You Can Take to Prevent Auto Theft

Auto theft is a crime that can happen to anyone, but there are a number habits you can develop that will make it less likely that your vehicle will be stolen. At Wynne Volvo Cars of Hampton, we've found these simple tips to be effective deterrents.

A couple simple habits to develop include keeping your vehicle locked at all times, including while you're on the road. If the manufacturer included an auto-locking feature, it's best not to disable it. Most carjackers will abandon an attempt to take your vehicle if they aren't able to open its doors.

Other ways to make your vehicle less attractive to thieves is to park it in well-lit spaces at night, stay out of high crime areas, and avoid leaving valuables in plain sight inside your car. Another habit to break is stepping out of your vehicle with the engine is still running.
