Default Attempted break-in

Well, some moron decided to try and break in the drivers side door of the Vette. They pushed the rubber piece back just below the window and damaged that and left a dent in the top of the door. They DID NOT gain access. Being fixed on Monday.

Our complex is suppose to be gated and they have not fixed the gate in over a year. Time to sick the lawyer on them now. The reason we moved here is because it is suppose to be a gated community.

It's amazing how people who can't have, what you have will try and take it by any means possible.

What did they dent? Our cars cant dent.
Did they chip or brake a piece off?

Anyway glad they did not smash a window and destroy the interior trying to start it.

They were trying to pry the black rubber piece back by the window and creased the top part of the door. Couple scratches and messed up the rubber piece. They gave up I guess.

I know, but it could have helped. It's what we are paying for and it would be nice if it worked.

This ................... Ironically gated complexes seem to have become breeding grounds for vehicle theft. Way too many leaving cell phones, iPads, etc in plain sight. Add to that kids giving out the gate pin # to their friends.

From what you are writing about I would say kids professional's don't make a mess of things. Hope you get it repaired to your satisfaction.

Sorry to hear that, like many on here it makes us mad to hear such stories.

Other people want to be where you are, they are just not willing to go where you have been to get there.

Ugh!

Duluth, Georgia is a high crime area (just kidding). Hope you get the car and the gate fixed.

Default i know some will LOSE YOUR MINDS

I have NEVER locked my car. If you want my cd's and sunglasses you can have them just don't damage the car. This was the hardest thing for my girlfriend to understand when I bought her Vert. I told her that if someone cuts the top or breaks the glass because they could not get in, SHE would have to answer for it.

For a newer Corvette, I think your reasoning is a little flawed because I don't think most could figure out how to open your unlocked door anyway. Once they try it and fail, out comes the tools to break and damage the car to get in.

Ignorance is bliss. Gated community is as secure as one with no gate. All you have to do is wait outside the gate for someone to open it first.

Much like gun laws only effect honest gun owners, gates only keep honest people out. crooks know how to jump gates when they want to get in. usually a gate provides more incentive to them, as they figure out there is more to have inside the land surrounded by the gate than outside.
