One way to improve this is to change your car’s trunk lock, and carry the keys separately from your ignition keys - I used to carry a full set of duplicate keys on a single split ring - my main set was on a double detachable ring - when I had work done, the mechanic had only the ignition key in order to do the service, etc. - one solution for anyone with a nose problem.
With an SUV, pickup, or most modern sedans (since roughly 2007, maybe?), this doesn’t help, for the following reasons:
- Cars with push-button start don’t have keys separate from the fob, and the fob can be used to unlock and pop the rear access (door, liftgate, etc.).
- Many modern sedans without a push-button start still have the ignition key integrated with the fob.
- Most modern sedans have a split fold-down rear seat. That fold-down could be accessed from the cabin.
- Pickups and SUVs are open throughout (I know that’s obvious. Including it anyway).
If your sedan is old enough, or you are fortunate enough to own a sedan with a valet key, the trunk lock technique is perfectly workable.
I bought a console safe that has a combination. Hopefully that slows down theft. Definitely works for servicing car. But Zi do not put valuables in storage unless at the gym. yea, right, me at the gym.
Saved me the trouble of answering. Thanks ( just wanted to see my name here)
Just buy a Ford. The door lever is electronic, and Ford can’t figure seals out, so it will go out in a couple years and no one will be able to get in. (I’m salty about a weekend project I have coming up with my wife’s car )
Stop complaining. You got off easy.
