People that have car alarms for their shitty cars

One of my douche bag co workers has a freakin car alarm on shitty old Jeep Grand Cherokee. LMAO seriously what a fuckin idiot. I just want to tell him dude NO ONE is gonna steal your shitty ass car.

It went off in the parking lot the other day and my co workers and I were dying laughing watching his dumbass run out of the parking lot frantically. Such a fuckin idiot.

So, should people pay to have their car alarm removed once their car reaches a certain age?

Car alarms have been around since the 80s, so of course older cars are going to have alarms. Many cars come with alarms when you buy them. I personally have an old Mazda that has an alarm. It came with the alarm when I bought it brand new. It was my first car. It was a nice car then, but It's an old clunker now. Just because it got old didn't change the fact that it has an alarm.

Aren't shitty cars way more likely to be stolen or broken in to? The whole "broken window" effect?

While I've luckily never needed my car alarm in my semi-older vehicle, I certainly would be unable to get to work or afford a new one if it was stolen.

Any deterrent is better than no deterrent, yeah? And like what Bob said, my car came with it. Didn't have an option.

Well as my mom used to say : "One man's junk is another man's treasure."

Older cars are definitely stolen. My son and his girlfriend moved to Alaska in a clunker so horrible that the Canadian border would not let them through at first when they arrived in the evening. They have certain standards because they don't want to have to go out and rescue your ass if you're stranded out in the wilderness. They made them wait til morning but they were lucky to get through at all. Anyway, their car was stolen within a couple of months.

Where I live in Tucson, hell yes clunkers are stolen left and right and they're over the border and gone in record time.

Did you read his post? If so, your response doesn't really make sense. He pointed out what most of us were probably thinking, that most likely the alarm came with the car when it was new, most cars had them installed automatically. I drive a 12-year-old Buick that I never worry about people stealing, but it has a car alarm because the dude who bought it before me over a decade ago bought it with one. If your car is less than 25 years old, it probably has an alarm.

You're the only one who knows this guy you're making fun of, so maybe he is a paranoid idiot, but unless you know he got it installed recently, it's kind of ridiculous to suggest he or anyone else pay to have their car alarms removed when their cars get older and shittier.

Nobody thought two planes would fly into WTC, but it happened didn't it? I think you're overreacting out of some personal issues with the guy.

'Shitty' cars get ransacked and stolen ALL the time where I live in NW England, probably moreso than the higher end models.

It definitely reads like you hate this guys fucking guts.

Wait, are we talking about sensory alarms that go off with contact, or the ones that have an alarm button on the fob?

Really??? I thought it was the other way around. Here in Phoenix, Arizona the nicer cars are the ones that get stolen.

Meth addicts will steal cars for their next drug fix. Some guy at one point told me he use to get a four thousand dollar rate at a chop shop in Long Beach. No cars older then two years. There's actually far more effective alternatives to car alarms like grants lock out cap that lets you unlock the steering wheel and remove it. Or aeromotive makes a fuel cut off switch blocking the fuel pump passage cutting off gas to the engine when the ignition is turned over.

wow I honestly had no clue. Thanks for that list Ace

And I guess that giant douche is justified having an alarm now.

And I guess I better go out and buy an alarm for my shitty 1998 Honda Accord

you should have stuck to your guns. Rather then letting a two year old list spook you into getting an alarm on that piece of crap you drive like the douche you were just insulting.

Car alarms are infuriating no matter what the make and model of the car is. Everyone has been in that situation where somebody in the area unwittingly pressed the car alarm on their fob and after five minutes of ruckus all anyone could think about was how to find and kill the person responsible.

BTW, I've owned two of the cars on that list at some point (1994 Integra, 1998 Civic).
