My dad has filed a police report and been to the police station today. Someone has attempted to steal our car to resell it, but hasn’t succeeded in it and instead has damaged it. My parents have to pay a few thousand dollars to fix it.

My dad had that happen to him when he was working. They found it but a lot of stuff had been removed from it. I hope insurance pays for at least some of the repair costs for your dad

I had a car stolen....

I was 16 or 17. I was taking classes at the local community college and so my parents supplied me with a car, a 1990 Buick Century Limited station wagon...with a V6 and power everything. It actually was very plushy and quite powerful... and I liked it.... but kind of a "grandpa" car. Nonetheless, I called it my "Surfmobile" (I was still a surfer in those days).

One day, I parked generally where I usually did in the student parking lot. But when I returned.... the car was gone BUT IN IT'S PLACE was a pile of all my stuff! Yeah, whoever took the car took the time to remove all my stuff! My CD's, my books and things, my jacket, even the stuff in the glove box! Amazing! There it was, piled up neatly in the parking space!

I contacted security who said they had recently gone past that spot and didn't see this, so they concluded the crime must have just happened. I called the police and they came out. They told me that older cars like this generally are just abandoned and it would be recovered, but sometimes they are driven across the border into Mexico and sold cheap in which case it would not be recovered. Well... it was never recovered. It was not insured but my parents didn't pay much for it. Mom ended up getting a new car and gave me her Camry which I owned for several years.

Sorry to hear that, if they have insurance, will they not cover anything?

Nop, insurance doesn’t pay for it at all. Dad is driving a borrowed car from our dealer. It’s completely and totally unusable currently for my dad.

What kind of coverage did you have on the car then?

Please stop asking about it anymore as it’s my dad’s car and not mine, thence why I myself won’t have anymore updates on it at all. And it’s my dad who has reported them, thence why I’ve no idea how things are currently with it all and it’s quite annoying having to reply to every little post about it for me personally.
