Is it a good deterrent against car thieves? Thinking of driving into JB with my new car, so worried about car theft. Read stories about them able to bypass ur car electronic alarms, etc ... So is a wheel sterring lock good enough to prevent them from stealing or towing away ur car?

People wants to steal your car, they will have ways to break it.
However if that yours is a common model, they will likely to walk away.

They don't steal all cars....only those in demand. If the car is in huge demand, they will steal no matter what. I feel it is sufficient to just practice common sense eg. avoid parking in less crowded places, leaving valuable things exposed, living cars to car wash/polish vendors while you go shopping, etc.....

steering lock to slow down them down from driving away but if towing what ever lock you have also gone. they lift your whole car up. bigcry.gif
But just bear in mind park where there is jaga not too quiet places. if you driving on highway ensure you dun drive slow but if you driving merz, BMW can't advise you much but better dun drive in.

The Steering wheel lock won't prevent, but it will deter

Get a pedal lock as well; I use a chain, twirl it ard the pedals, then lock it with a regular lock

Whatever safety device you use...don't be too excessive. I know someone kenna car-jacked while he was unlocking all the extra locks in the car....the guy just smashed his window and opened the door from inside. He was probably a sitting duck while he was unlocking and removing all the locks. His was m'sian registered wira.

There's a new product called RASLOK in the market, I found it in Autobacs, it's a Singapore product, good quality, patented, seems to the most secure steering wheel anti-theft lock in the market. visit their website for more info: www.raslok.com

All stering locks are useless as the steering wheel
is designed to be soft and easily cut to minimise impact
to your head in the event of an accident.

The metal rod inside the steering wheel can easily be cut.
However the brake and clutch pedal is extremely strong
metal designed not to break when you stamp hard on it
during e brake.

So the best lock is a foot brake lock.

Followed by Msian cars.

The least targeted are Kim chi cars.

I use the kind of steering wheel lock that is like a big hook. Hooks to the steering wheel and the pedal.

Just wondering, statistically, has anyone ever locked using a steering wheel lock and still got his car stolen ?
Argueing with a fool proves there are two.
