Funny you say that.. Mine got stolen from Vesta on friday night. the saturday the week before 2 cars got stolen from Villagio MID DAY!!!!! ON a saturday. They are hitting every where, Nutley,Belleville, hasbouck hieghts, ramsey, mahwah you name it. cars have been stolen from car washes one in ramsey and one at magic touch in HH.. Do not valet anywhere in this area. I have a few boys who are cops and they said it is outragous right now.

I am just thankful that i decided to not take my Z06 friday night due to rain in the forecast.

I carry my car docs on me all the time - license, registration and insurance cards- paying for an extra copy of registration for each of us is a cheaper if not for the extra safety. Much as I love the keyless-push button starts on my 2 Nissan's Ann soon to be JGC, I wish there is an actual valet fob that only let's the car run for say 10 minutes since the vehicle immobilizers only work if there is no key detected. Maybe if the physical key is removed. I've always wondered about leaving the car running and not give the attendant the fob so they can only park the car or it will shut off. Then at pick up ill hand them the fob to start it.

Re: North Jersey Stolen jeep

Do these places require that you use valet parking?

Yes this place did. I could have parked on the street, but all the spots were taken

Did you guys download the app and hit the panic button? It would give them a thrill for a few minutes.

Re: North Jersey Stolen jeep

The only habit I'd change would be using valet parking, or frequenting businesses that require it.

I would never not go to a restuaraunt bc they make you valet, that would be silly! What i would do is park on a side street, Or park my own car and take the keys. Then throw the valet a few bucks to let them know i appreciate it.

Re: North Jersey Stolen jeep

I'm curious about all these cars being stolen and whether they are showing up. I wonder if this is something Homeland Security is getting involved in.
These cars have to be somewhere.

I would still use valet parking at a good restaurant. Of course since moving from NY to Delaware, that decision doesn't come up much any more. My MDX had the option in the nav to search for only Zagat rated establishments. There are none in Delaware.

Re: North Jersey Stolen jeep

Nothing new Bill these cars get stolen all to easy with a key( the valet guys are all in on it, they get an order and when a specific car comes in they make a call) within hours they are in a container at some port going over seas where the msrp is doubled. I still remember back in the days when every one though On star was the savior of stolen vehicles but a small piece of tin foil on the on star antenna totally rendered it useless lol. That is no longer an issue with On star BTW.
