No car is theft proof. Easiest way to steal any car->tow truck.
Nissan system kills starter, spark, fuel. can't get any better than that.

Seriously, save the money on the alarm and just upgrade your insurance if you already haven't.

It's not an alarm. Check the link.

Insurance claims are a hassle, along with the feelings of being violated.

And what do the thieves do with the vehicles that are stolen, assuming they don't have the proper keys?
If they are often stolen then it's the minimum wage wash rack dude giving keys
to the thieves.
Stolen brand new cars may end up in Mexico or Russia.

That's why if they steal it I never want it back.

I used to add after market security, NEVER THE CRAP THE DEALER ADDS! The dealer will add some junk alarm that they use on the lot and try to sell it to you as a upgrade for $300-$400.

If I would add a security system it would be a pager type that I can set on silent with pager, so the little fella dosen't know I know. If your not prepaired/trained, all a alarm will do is frustrate you and annoy your neighbors. Theives know they are there and just smash and grab. Call PD or Sheriff and at best you'll get a 10 minute responce, how much damage/stealing can you do and still have plenty of time to get away? As for the alarms, no one pays attention any more and if they do, most don't want to get involved.

Christ, this thread is NOT ABOUT ALARMS! I never asked about an alarm. I am talking about the Nissan Vehicle Immobilier System vs. A Revelco Plug that won't let the car start/run without it.

Well I finally read the website the OP posted and it looks to me to be just a higher quality aftermarket imobilizer.

I'm not trying to defend Nissan but if their saying that pro thiefs can easily defeat the factory system then I dont see why the pro's wont quikly learn how to bypass their system.

One way or another, whether the thief's start, tow, or strip the vehicle on site, if they want your vehicle or a part of it and you dont have locked up in a bunker 24/7, their getting it.

If it will give the OP or anyone wanting to do the same some piece of mind, then I say go for it.

Sorry, the Nissan Imobilizer is all I need, it keeps the average person away. I am more worried about the smash and grab, if they take the truck, I get a new one, its the busted window or pryed door that is a pain.

But its what ever makes your boat float, your property, your money

If a thief wants it, they are gonna get it and they know how to get it quickly.

Be realistic, it's just a truck! Get good insurance coverage from a big, reputable company and definately get the deductible waiver. They are well worth it. I filed a claim with my auto ins company last Fall and had zero out of pocket costs since I had the deductible waiver in my coverage.

Personally, I think someone should market some sort of defense system to install on vehicles. Something that creates an intolerable high pitch frequency if a trigger is tripped, or a pepper spray defense or something to "defend".
