2012 Model Year Radios: New Anti-Theft Feature
 
Starting with the 2012 model year, radios will come equipped with an anti-theft feature. Once a radio is installed in a vehicle, it learns the vehicle’s VIN and cannot be used in another vehicle unless an anti-theft code is applied.

Anti-Theft codes can be obtained by dealers. The new vehicle VIN will have to be supplied, along with the serial number of the radio.

As well as give the dealer another opportunity to charge you for something.

Or more likely..."Are you sure it comes with a code? Hmmm well I have no idea what it is or where it is". That would be my concern.

"anti-theft" is a misnomer. I agree with the other posters. This isn't a good thing.
