I dropped my car off at Alberta Honda yesterday to have my clutch and trnasmission serviced. I got a call this morning from Honda saying that my car was broken into. I went to the dealership t take a look. My heart sank to the bottom of my stomach. The passenger window was smashed, glass everywhere inside the car. My dash was ripped apart and my Indash DVD/Stereo was stolen. They also took my Radar Detector and my Amplifier that was in the trunk. This sucks big time. :(

Here are the pictures. :sadbanana:

Was your car parked inside the dealership when this happened? Did they ask for you to sign a contract before you released your car saying theyre not liable for stolen stuff?

I would think someone has balls to start breaking into cars at a dealership, and alot of knowledge too. Maybe an employee knew u were packin.

Maybe im just being stupid and iggnorant, but alot of my friends who had sound systems in their cars got broken into after they have gone through some kind of repairs.

Hopefully. If i find out who did it, I will be doing some serious personal damage to them.

Wow that's ridiculous. Are there any surveillance camera's around the lot???
Yes. I believe the dealership and police are going through the video now.

I hope thats not what happened here.

The car was inside a gated fence. They would have had to jump/climb the fence in order to get to my car. It was not visible from the main road. But during operating hours anybody could have walked or driven past the car. But for some reason something dosen't seem right. Another car there also got broken into. An older model civic. Apparently it was owned by an employee at the dealership. But instead of breaking the passenger window in this car they broke the rear quarter window. But it appears that a stereo was stolen from this car too. All I know is I'm pissed and my car might never make another visit to Alberta Honda unless they does something about this issue.

its most likely someone working in the dealer ship giving someone a job to do at night.....but good luck
this is completely false. How does that make any sense, that an employee would cause direct reputation to their own dealership for an oem in dash dvd player?

people case out dealerships ALL the time. they see an aftermarket looking deck, assume theres more, so they smash and grab what they can.

a honda dealer is a great lot too, as you would assume that used/registered cars on the lot would be modified more than other dealers, as most of the cars there are civics, and we have a huge modifying community.

I'm not sure if I understand you correctly. But the Indash DVD was not OEM. It was a Pioneer AVH-P4100DVD. Also Stolen was a Passport Escort Radar Detector and a JL Audio G-Max Amplifier. This has a value of approximetlt $1500.00 - $2000.00 Canadian dollars.

I am not blaming the dealership. But why would the employee car have the small quater window broken and not the passenger or driver side window broken like was broken in mine. I just hope whoever stole it got hit by the train that passes close by the dealership.

Yeah it is not the greatest feeling. At least what they did take could be replaced. I'm going to go back to the dealership now in an hour or so to get an update on the situation. And I will also call the cop i dealt with today. I have to get my receipts together for the things that were stolen and fax it to my insurance and the police.
