There has been a rise in thefts of third row seats from Cadillac and Chevy SUV’s. Thieves will break into a vehicle, unlatch the mechanism that secures the third row seats, and remove the seats from the vehicle. The thieves will then sell the seats for profit.
Ways to prevent thieves from taking your third row seat:
- Use a bike cable or gun cable lock to lock the seat to the floor of the SUV. Using a cable lock will make your third row seat less desirable to the thief.
- Check with your Chevrolet dealership, some sell an anti-theft device through the parts department.
- If you do not use your seat take it out and store it at your residence.
- Engrave your seat with some type of identification number such as your California Driver’s License number as these seats are not serialized. There are other products on the market that will help locate your property. If your seat is taken please notify the responding officers that you have marked your property.
