Yet again, another article saying Intrepids are targeted. It explains why so many people here have had their cars stolen...

Honestly, if you have a Club, people don't even bother thinking about taking your car.

i hate clubs. there freaking ugly. pluss all you have to do is cut the stearing wheel in one place and your club is off.

the break pedal club is much better and cannot be simply cut out like the wheel club can.

i kinda want a taurus now...but only if its an SHO.
The exterior differences between a normail taurus and an SHO i think are barely noticeable to ordinary car thiefs so i dont think the theft rate would be different.
SHO...SRT...SHO...SRT...hmmm...hey firespirit, what was the last year they made SHO's? j/w

I have a feeling the Intrepid is only on the list simply because there are SO many of them around.

Maybe...but it seems to me like Ford has been doing a better job on OEM car security. Even my 99 SE had a security thing.

Last year was '99. But personally I'd never get a '99 SHO.. too many "cost saving" deletes. However, it's pretty easy to tell a stock SHO from a stock SLO. Take the infamous "Maxi-pad" spoiler in the back. SHO specific. As well as the front lip in the bumper (see sig)

It's okay sweetie, I still wuv you! :)
