Everybody be aware!! do not valet your vehicles anywhere in central or north jersey!!!!!! My brand new 2013 Overland was stolen friday night from a restuaraunt valet right off rt.17 in east rutherford!!!! just rolled 1000 miles

They are hitting all the valet's in the area, even mid day in broad day light! They also got a truck from a car wash!!!

They hit the board where they leave all the keys stole everyones keys and got away with my truck and a 2012 infiniti g37. Just passing this along as i do not want to see this happen to anyone else! they have tons of my personal information my valentine one radar, bank deposit and withdrawel slips etc etc. Thankfully nothing with my new adress on it since i have just moved and hadn't changed anything over yet.

Out of curiosity, did you have the UConnect theft call made? I wondered if the "pro's" would be able to disable the gps right way so it becomes useless. If they didn't, just wondering if you could have tracked it with UConnect.

PS - Sorry this happened to you.

Not sure that really matters if you carry your registration in the vehicle.
That or leave any mail in the car. Thing I wouldn't understand is why someone would be crazy enough to steal your car, then show up to your house and try to rob you a second time. Not to say it wouldn't happen, but now you're taking a bigger risk at getting caught by going to that persons house with them probably on high alert.

THIS is the reason why my wife and I carry all our documents on us at all times. If anyone has to borrow any of our cars, we just hand it to them.

Thats why I always program the Home feature on the GPS for a business nearby in my area. Happened to a friend, someone stole his car and the thief went directly to my friends house and robbed him blind, knowing he would not be home for hours with having to deal with the police. horrible scenario lose your car then get your house burglarized. I wouldnt wish that on my worst enemy.

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.

But then when they leave the stuff in the car and it gets stolen, same scenario right?

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.

Do these places require that you use valet parking?
