Sleep well at night knowing your vehicle is equipped with the latest and most effective LoJack system available.

Santa Barbara Auto Group is proud to partner with LoJack, the leader in stolen vehicle recovery systems throughout the United States. Customers of Santa Barbara Auto Group have the option to install the LoJack stolen vehicle recovery system into their vehicle to create further peace of mind. In the event of a vehicle theft, LoJack works immediately and directly with the local police station to locate your vehicle using the latest tracking technology in the industry. With many California cities leading the country in number of car thefts per capita, it is becoming more and more important for Santa Barbara and Southern California drivers to take extra precautions with their vehicles.

Things to Consider Regarding Vehicle Theft

It’s obvious that being the victim of vehicle theft is going to cause significant unanticipated costs, but most drivers aren’t aware of how many different ways this event can hit your wallet. Some hidden costs to consider in the event of vehicle theft are:

  • Loss of deductible insurance
  • Loss of start-up costs: sales taxes, registration fees, first payment, etc.
  • Cost of rental: above insurance coverage, beyond 30 days
  • Loan payments until vehicle declared “total loss”
  • Personal property in vehicle
  • Cost of lost time (inconvenience)
  • Cost of your peace of mind

By installing LoJack drivers can be sure that their vehicle is under the care of the most successful theft recovery system available. In fact, many stolen vehicles equipped with LoJack are returned within hours of the crime. That kind of peace of mind is worth the cost.

How does LoJack Work?

The LoJack Stolen Vehicle Recovery System operates using three basic principles: Notification, Activation, and Recovery.

  1. Notification:

If a driver chooses to upgrade the LoJack system, a notification will be sent via text message or email any time the car is moved without the driver’s authorization. If the driver is using the standard LoJack, it will be activated immediately after the stolen vehicle is reported to the police.

  1. Activation:

As soon as your vehicle is reported stolen, the LoJack system is activated, emitting a uniquely coded signal to our network of police cars, helicopters and airplanes.

  1. Recovery:

Police use the LoJack tracking system—a system that, unlike a common GPS signal, can track your vehicle through concrete, buildings, steel, etc.—to track the unique signal emitted by your car to locate and retrieve it as quickly as possible.

The LoJack system is undetectable by thieves and offers 24-hour vehicle recovery guarantee. Boasting a 90% recovery rate, it is fair to say that they have proven their dominance as the best vehicle recovery system available.

Santa Barbara Auto Group offers several upgrades for the LoJack system as part of the standard package. Included in the standard LoJack package is LoJack Early Warning (EW), Extended Recovery System (XRW), and Guarantee Plus 5000 (GP5000). To learn more about these upgrades, contact Santa Barbara Auto Group.
