This is my first car with any security. i bought the scion security but wonder now if it was worth the money. Am i better off getting a diffeent system? Can 2 alarms work togther if i do?

Is the engine immobilizer any good? do these things really prevent hot wiring and if so, do thieves have work around?

thanks,

Dave

The immobilizer does come stock, and it's a pretty sweet little system. It actually just cuts the fuel to the engine, so if somebody tried to hot wire the car it would never start.

Yep, even if you start the car with a key fob for another car on the same keychain as your Scion key fob, apparently the car may start but the engine will cut out soon thereafter (at least that's what I think I read in the manual) b/c of the code in the other key.

So, it seems to be a pretty nice failsafe to have.
