Protect Your Ride: How to Prevent Car Theft

Here at Mercedes-Benz of Arlington, we don't want you to become one of the estimated 770,000 drivers whose vehicles are stolen each year. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says more than half of those thefts could have been prevented by the driver. Protect your ride by following these common sense guidelines: 
  • Lock your car doors, even while you are driving.
  • Do not leave your keys in your vehicle, and do not leave your vehicle running if no one is inside.
  • Some thieves are looking for valuables. Do not leave items like jewelry, laptops, cell phones, etc. out in the open inside your vehicle.
  • Always roll up your windows and close your sunroof before exiting your vehicle.
  • Avoid parking in dark or dimly lit areas.

Always remain aware of your surroundings, and call the police immediately if you ever feel you are in danger.
