You didn't read what i wrote. Straw man argument. There are vins that you do not know about on MAJOR components of cars. Not every body panel. Fraud consultants to Insurance Bureau of Canada say its so.carguru32 wrote: ↑Apr 8th, 2013 12:03 pmTo keep the facts straight- the claim about the etching comes from 3M- whether or not you believe 3M's claims is irrelevant. The vin is NOT imprinted on every panel on a vehicle- the reason why they do the dye on every panel is to make it difficult for a chop shop to sell off stolen bodel panels. Body panels do not have vins on them, at least they didnt when i worked at a manufacturer a few years ago. If a body shop wants to buy panels with a bunch of sand marks on them I would have to think that nothing would have prevented them from buying them in the first place knowing they were hot
THe 5000 benefit is only valid to the original selling dealer, you are correct. Still, i dont believe that you are ignorant enough to believe that there is that much margin that is simply waived as a promotional gimmick. THe selling dealer does not pay the benefit, the provider does, so to the dealer it is not a discount. It is a true 5000 off the price.
ALso when it comes to garage policies, the deductible is usually to the order of $5000. I assume you realize that if a car is stolen or damaged on a lot that there is a hefty deductible right?
5000 off the purchase of a car from the SELLING dealer. What if the dealer goes out of business.what if the dealer does not have a car you want. That's not remotely the same as a 5000 cash payout that can be added to whatever theft settlement the insurance company gives you. It forces you back to the selling dealer. That's not insurance.
You don't deny that the dealer already has a hefty insurance policy do you?
Globali has nothing to do with insurance deductibles on DAMAGE.
Globali "insurance" on thefts that occur before the dealer sells the car have no benifit to consumers. Why should I care? Why should I pay an extra 50, 70 or whatever dollars for Globali to give some benefit to the dealer on cars other than than the one I buy?
Its an ADD ON. People can buy it if they want but if I agree to purchase a car without a CD player and then you go and put in a CD player before I pick it up its not mandatory that I buy the CD player because the dealer chose to put it in. Its my dang car I didn't ask to have toi etched and I didn't agree to have it etched. You put it on withoput asking me if I want it? Guess dealer has to take the loss.
