    I am a neighbor and just want the jerk who stole this car to know that we are all on the lookout now.

    Did it happen to have a trailer? Our Subaru that was stolen twice had a trailer.

    It seems a lot Subs get ripped off around here. Are they perceived as hip or just easy to steal?

    This is about a friend of mine’s car. Further description of it that I would like to add, would be that there is duct tape attached to the back window/light area, which I think covers the word “Subaru” (for maintenance purposes).
    @GoGo: Thank you for posting that! Yes, we are all definitely on the lookout! I too, live in the area. Had to be someone casing the houses in the area.
    @Dale: Nope, no trailer.
    @Gary: I’ve heard that the key that is used on the model of Subarus is easily copied. Not sure on that but makes sense. As far as “hip”, I’d just call it “abundant”, as there are a TON of them around. It’s going to seem like they are always stolen since you can drive a mile and see about 12 of them within that time frame.
    Thanks for keeping your eyes peeled guys!

    I just got The Club (or some version) for mine. I figure, if the scum who steal cars see that obstacle, they’ll just more on to one of the other 36 Soobs on my street.
    .
    I would prefer to beat them to a pulp with a club, but I’m trying this instead, after having 2 cars stolen (pre-Soob).

    Its not that the keys are easily copied, its that the pins inside the locks wear as they get older, aswell as the keys themselves. eventually any ole subie key will work in any ole subie. older yota’s are prone to having the same issue.
    -options
    A)new locks, incl. ignition=$
    B)alarm=$
    C)club=ehhh.
    D)this is the one im going for in my resto. you can fairly easily wire in a hidden switch that will only allow power to the fuel pump when the switch is on. the car would turn over but wont run.

    -just some ideas for people. hope you get your subie back.

    I live up on Pigeon Point and did not hear about this until today. How discouraging and disappointing to have this type of crime occur in our great neighborhood!! I will definitely keep my eyes open.

    Update: Subaru found. One block down from where it was taken. All personal stuff gone out of it, but looked like they might’ve just needed to go somewhere with no other means of transpo. Thanks for the vigilance guys!

Sorry, comment time is over.
