150 cars stolen daily in Malaysia

 

By Austin Camoens

 

PETALING JAYA - An average of 150 vehicles are stolen a day in the country, with Proton and Perodua models topping the list of 112,503 whisked away since 2010.

 

Federal CID director Comm Datuk Seri Mohd Bakri Zinin said the high number of thefts was due to the demand not only for new but also old vehicles, which are cannibalised for their parts.

 

A total of 57,462 vehicle thefts were reported in 2010 while the number was 55,041 as of September 2011, he said.

 

He added: "There is a big demand for the stolen vehicles at construction sites in remote areas. Some are used in robberies and other criminal activities while certain models are exported overseas.

 

"We believe that vehicles like Toyota Hilux are stolen to feed the huge demand for four-wheel drives in the Middle East. We think that rebel forces use them to mount guns."

I happened to had owned 2 Perodua models. Both I traded-in for other brands with same main reason: security. Doors often unlocked by others' remote (Perodua's sensors on those two cars too obedient/sensitive to received remote signals and unlock when other drivers lock/unlocked their cars in the vicinity). Previous AD said nothing much can be done, but to isolate the remote device. No idea about Proton.
