Won't Buy Another ACURA anymore

Stupid car thieves broke into my wife's MDX (the 3rd time this year) at Brentwood mall. For whoever looking to buy an Acura, stay away !! Once a screw driver punched into the keyhole, it's about $300 to get it fixed and key coded at the dealer.
*Edit - screw drive thru keyhole won't trigger any sort of alarm or siren.

Now, to keep my wife happy, guess we're heading to the Mercedes or Lexus dealership this weekend.

Do you really think a Mercedes or Lexus will be cheaper for the same repair?

we had our ML broken into the same way before, and the alarm was set off. MDX won't trigger any kind of siren (actually I don't even think there's a siren)

Did you have anything in your MDX?

I'd be surprised if a thief wants to steal an MDX (immobilizer, kind of 'unique' on the road)

3rd time? Maybe be more vigilant at not leaving any valuables visible.

there's nothing in the car visible except two bady car seats and a baby stroller in the trunk. We learnt our lessons from the 2 break ins earlier this year already. Nothing is left inside the glove box or anywhere !

My wife told me she parked right in front of Starbucks already and there's tons of traffic. We blame it mostly on the car since it's a Honda.

have you looked at why they are breaking into her car? like leaving shit in the open. or like a couple posts up suggested to park in higher foot traffic areas or spots were the car can be seen easily by people all the time not in the lot somewhere at the back.

buying a new luxury car seems kinda stupid imo

Spending $50,000 for a new car because it costs $300 to fix your current one.

Makes sense.

maybe you should reconsider parking the car somewhere else that isn't prone to having car thieves breaking into your car and not blame what car brand you have
break-ins once or twice bad luck, break-in the 3rd time not random and might be a work of a serial car thief (thieves)

Don't leave anything in the car! Theives are not going to break into your wife's car just cause. There must be a reason, and i'm guessing nice sunglasses, an ipod, or shopping bags maybe the reason.
