Hi Just a warning to all fellow members, last week my 2006 Aurion ATX was stolen in Sydney (keyed entry)! I thought as a modern car the my Aurion was difficult to steal, so I was SURPRISED when the police constable - before I even told her the car model - said, "don't tell me it's a Toyota Aurion". I'd like to open a discussion on this, she said the Aurion has an easy ignition switch under the steering wheel. Does anyone know about this? News to me! If this is true I suspect my vehicle was also targeted because of the keyed entry making it easy to screwdriver in. Any auto electricians out there want to comment on the ignition switch rumour? What can we do to prevent this? If you live in Sydney be cautious, I was completely suprised car theft was a rising issue again -according to the police audii also are being targeted.
Hey guys, I'm a new member here. I thought I'd join after I purchased a new 2013 SR5 Hilux from my local Toyota dealership. I'm looking to get opinions and thoughts after it was broken into after owning it for less than a month. I live in a quiet suburb in Sydney and bought from my local Toyota Dealership. For two weeks I was up and down from Brisbane so it lined up perfectly with my first service (serviced at the dealership). I got it serviced during the week and had it parked in the driveway each night since then. I woke up on Monday morning to go to work and found the back window smashed in with the center console (no scratches) placed on the seat with the Stereo removed. No wires were cut as this was an extremely professional job. I rang the Police and the Dealership immediately and while the Police were no help I found out there were 5 2013 Hilux's returned to the dealership (after servicing) with the same issue. I was told there was a 4-5 week wait and the Stereos were shipped in. Apparently this is happening Sydney-wide and I want to confirm that with other Hilux lovers first. While my garage sports my wifes' Toyota Corolla, I may have to start parking in there. Do you guys have any suggestions and/or experienced similar? Cheers, Mark.
