Angry It happened again!

Only six days after getting the Trep, someone tried to steal it by smashing the driver's side window and prying up the driver's side door handle, etc.

And today, after coming out from the gym, some bastard had tried once more. Passenger side's door handle was pried upward (probably with a screwdriver) and someone had been "looking" through the glove compartment and the rest of the cabin. CDs, insurance papers, receipts and other stuff was spread all over the interior. Only thing missing: A fucking one dollar bill from the console between the two front seats!

The first time it happened I "fixed" the handle by glueing it back in place, but this time it seems worse so I have to go to a bodyshop or something to that effect to repair it. Does anyone have any idea what they might charge to screw/glue/push it back in place? Labor? Or what about two completely new handles?

So this time we're gonna get a damn alarm on the thing, but that won't stop anyone from doing the same shit all over again - by the time the alarm goes off, they're practically running already. Not to mention that I have little or no time to see/catch whoever's doing it... Any recommendations on a decent alarm system that won't cost an arm and a leg?

Ok, fine. I do live in Newark, New Jersey, but seriously. It's a Dodge Intrepid, not anything fancy or expensive and yet I can't have it for myself.

In other bad news, today I found out that my own mom cashed my tax return and never told me about it and I know there's little chance of getting it back...

At least I still have the car and when it comes right down to it, that's all it is. A damn car.

But it sucks anyways.

End of rant.

Enjoy your weekend and your LH.

Jacob

Get a Viper car alarm... with one of those pagers that alerts you when some idiot is tampering with your ride.
Newark? Heh... that explains everything. :( My grandmother lives in Lake Hiawatha... (By the Oranges & Morristown)
How the hell did your mom cash YOUR tax return check? It must by refund season in NJ... Normally it's at the end of the year when we get our W-2's.

I have had security personal tell me that if a person sees a quarter in the car they will break into it. Skumbags will break into anything now days because they get away with it. Too bad it wasn't the drivers side I have an extra handle for that.

How much does a Viper alarm cost? Can't be cheap.

Yeah, about my mom. I didn't explain that well enough. Back in February I gave her power of attorney to cash my tax return check from Denmark (I've only been in the US since 2002 - became a permanent resident only last week) but she claimed she couldn't find the check the state had sent to her and besides the state said that they wanted it back before they could issue a new one and resend it to me over here. So I sent an email to the local city hall in the county where she lives and today they told me that the money was taken out in April 2004...

I could use those $$$ right about now...

Heh... My viper ran me above $500. Demand that your mom gives you the money. Or you'll sue (don't really sue her, but it'll scare her!)

Nothing was visible from the outside - only some empty water bottles in the back seat. Even if I get a replacement handle I don't even know what color to get - according to the VIN and all that, my car's color is "gold". Check out the picture. I've seen plenty of Treps that actually ARE gold in color and mine isn't one of them... It may officially be gold, but what the hell do you call the ones that actually LOOK gold?

isn't that illegal?

also as for the breaking into the car I've known some people that live in bad places and got so sick of fixing broken windows that they would just leave the windows open enough to reach the lock (or all the way down) and the doors unlocked so that they can go in and look around (take everything outa the car obviously) and have a kill switch installed so that it can't be stolen, or take out some fuse so it can't be started / driven but not sure which fuse it is without reseting the transmission etc...

never heard of an alarm that pages you, that would be cool to get paged in the gym and go out there with like 30 buff persons and stomp some crack addict ass.

Have someone look at the color code on the door, but judging by your picture it looks to be the same color as mine........Cinnamon Glaze.
