    I saw the same car last week when I dropped mine off. That dealership has had problems with this before. They told me to buy wheel locks. Ironically, my HC spent a week at that dealership 2 weeks ago, and I still have my wheels. Granted, mine was up on a rack inside most of the time.

    Dealership better get on the horn today and file the proper insurance paperwork and order some OEM wheels AND tires.

    Dealer I use includes wheel locks for free on all vehicles. Just a standing policy they have due to theft. Not really in a bad area, but much of the lot is out of view at night and it's real easy to steal wheels. Was walking the lot while getting service done last year and there was a Charger R/T back in the middle of the pack, in line, up on bricks.

    They're handling it (I talked to the body shop manager while I was there). It happened prior to last Thursday, because that's when I saw it. I don't know whose car it is, but it is obviously a customer owned vehicle, because it has a license plate. Apparently this has been happening all over the metro detroit area (at people's homes, dealership lots, etc.).

    I once seen 11 cars on bricks at the Southfield Chrysler Dealership in the south overflow parking lot. Next to the Toys r us.

    That has to give a warm fuzzy leaving your car there! That stinks!

    Just my .02 but wheel locks are useless. Any teenage thief with even a 1/2 a clue can defeat them no problem. The ones without a 1/2 a clue will still try. They may not succeed but then you end up with gouged wheels.

    I never use wheel locks. If somebody has to have the wheels let them take them.

    The dealer never should of left that car out,, the last few months in the area they have been targeting these cars,, this dealer is in a very good part of town,, they have tons on inventory,, service cars should be locked behind a fence

    Agreed. Unfortunately, there is no fence at this dealership. They have staging lots where they receive vehicles, which are secured. But the area where they park vehicles to be serviced is not secure (unless your vehicle stays inside because they are in the middle of working on it). This dealer does a LOT of volume, so they shuffle cars around a lot. Not a good scenario, for sure.

    Why, being in that area, would any dealership not have all of their holding areas fenced? HellCat, even my little dealership in little Statesboro, Ga, has fenced all of their holding areas! I would not be using that dealership for any service on Dante, that is certain!

    Wheel locks mean nothing. My shop managed to shread one right off by accident while taking it off. Either that or just take a pry bar and hit it till it breaks. They are a deturrent, it just adds a minute or two further taking them off.
