    superior? no, Id say more secure, knowing I wont have bullets flying in my windows, thugs on the street corners and my car being broken into.

    Bob, you might be too "snobbish" to live in those areas, but many people live in those middle class affordable areas. You must feel superior to lots of people.

    hello people!? Why would you leave wallets, GPS systems, money, etc in your car, and then leave it unlocked on top of that? That's just stupid. Have some common sense.

    You shouldn't leave your car unlocked no matter where it is. Even garages aren't exactly the most well secured place. It's just a little harder to get to. Even in college my friends and I knew that it was safer to take everything out, we even took our face plates to our stereos to avoid having them stolen from the cars.

    Why would you leave your car unlocked if it's outside??????

    Why would anyone leave valuables in an unlocked car? I leave nothing of value if I'm not in my car. If it isn't seen chances are your won't be broken into.
