Could a honda get jacked without the steering wheel???

#1
Just wondering if somebody could still steal a civic without the steering wheel? I have a quick release and wondering if all quick release steering wheels could be used together or do they have different type of bearings? Just asking this question cuz civic's are the most stolen car in San Diego, Ca.

most hubs are universal with what ever quick release your using. but you'll need to have more security that just a quick release cause a thief will find a way to steal it if he wants it bad enough. I'd say some kill switch's, good alarm system and I've also read about people taking their ecu with them when they park the car... just some ideas but that doesn't stop them from loading it up on a flat bed tow truck and hauling it off if they want it bad enough

Stuff that people have mentioned plus a lock on the steering wheel column plus wheels locks and a boot on each wheel! Most important is layers of security. This won't stop a tow truck from dragging your car but it can discourage them from taking your car making them move on to the next one. Which one do you think they will take? Two same civics, one with all this stuff, or the one without them?

having a quick release is useless if you dont have a lock to put on the hub..thats like having a door-knob without the lock as your front door to your house

Mine did, not only that but it had 3 kill switches and an alarm.

When it comes to protection, more is always better, but nothing is guaranteed!

where do you guys live lol!!! This must be a bigger problem is larger cities huh? seeing as most of you are from California is it a really big problem out there? In omaha the only time i hear about a car getting stolen is usually because some woman forgot where she parked and freaked out and called the cops (seriously, it happens ALL THE TIME!!!)

If thieves want it, they'll take it, no matter what kind of protection you have. And remember that thieves will usually scope out your car before they actually take it. So they may bring a spare wheel.

I think that one of the best things you can do to prevent theft is not make your car known. I know plenty of people that have some flashy cars and they don't really post pics or list their mods. They just drive it around and if a photo op opportunity arises, they take it but they don't post it on every forum to get everyone to see it.

Or park your car in a secure garage.

Big problem here where I live. And yea, keeping your car on the down low will help. Add lots of layers to make it hard for them. Theres thieves that will scope and plot on your car and theres the ones that will take it on the spot.
