UTV SxS Anti-Theft Theft Deterrent


Looking for constructive feedback on Theft Deterrents, Anti-Theft, and UTV Trackers for Mexico…

The new Polaris RZR is equipped with the factory P.A.S.S. Anti-Theft System https://rzr.polaris.com/en-us/self-help/article/KA-03019/ but I’m unable to find any online reviews etc as to how well it actually works.

This aftermarket Anti-Theft System looks interesting http://www.ravelcobaja.com/product/ but I wonder if it would just be a kind of duplication of the Polaris P.A.S.S Anti-Theft System.

I also wonder if a quality Satellite GPS Tracking System would be a good investment_ In hopes of trying to track & retrieve immediately if stolen_ With motion detection notification, etc.

Lastly, I’m wondering if an Anti-Theft Shift Lock might make it a bit harder for potential thieves to simply push, pull, or tow the UTV away.

Hey Lencho,

I did send an email, documenting & requesting assistance, to that General Manager_ NADA 👎🏼

I also have this response from Polaris Industries:
“ We've created a case for you and a specialist will be reaching out within 1-2 business days. Your case number is C-xxxxxxxx. If needed, you can reach your case owner by calling 1-800-POLARIS and using the case number we provided you with. “

Lastly, I am communicating with PROFECO & Condusef, for the Dealership violation Mexico Consumer Protections_ NORMA Oficial Mexicana NOM-160-SCFI-2014, Prácticas comerciales-Elementos normativos para la comercialización de vehículos nuevos.

In short…
After hours & days of getting nowhere, repeatedly being told I had to pay the supposed price increase, I was told to either pay it & fully secure/own my RZR or they were simply going to immediately sell it to the other customers waiting to buy it.

So, I paid & we will see what happens with my ongoing fight for ju$tice… “Eso Pasa!” jajaja :/

What are you going to do with tracking data after unit is stolen?
Do you think cops will rescue your cart?
Are you gonna go Rambo and rescue your cart?
I would insure it, lock it up when not in use, and if stolen seek reimbursement thru insurance.




Woke!

~ Find it.

Do you think cops will rescue your cart?
~ Possibly. I hear we may be surprised what a smile, a little Spanish, and a modest ‘propina’ can do.

Are you gonna go Rambo and rescue your cart?
~ Possibly. “I do have a very particular set of skills.”

I would insure it, lock it up when not in use, and if stolen seek reimbursement thru insurance.
~ Good for you. It’s crazy I never thought of this!

Thanks ✌🏻

I am currently trying out LandAirSea asset protection. Monthly charge for service. I can move it from vehicles, toys, and watercraft.
I feel the same about a propina and a smile for local authorities or I know some not so nice guys always looking to make a few pesos.

A cost-effective anti-theft device is a hidden toggle switch to cut off the fuel pump. The switch can be hidden almost anywhere, but perhaps best if reached by the driver, while strapped in. I don't rely on just one anti-theft device. Rather, a combination of devices to protect my toys. At least one visible deterrent is good, such as a steering wheel "Club". Adding an audible alarm may be an effective deterrent, though more difficult to conceal on an open vehicle. Does your RZR have a quick release steering wheel? They fit nicely under a pillow, lol.
Of course, a problem with motos, ATVs and UTVs is that the thieves can load them onto a pickup or trailer, or steal your loaded trailer. Locks, cables and chains can be defeated by the determined meth addict. So, when all else fails, you will have insurance.

SPOT Trace Satellite Tracker has been recommended to me…

Anyone familiar with it?

You sound very concerned about theft. Where do you live that has high theft that causes you concern?

Baja _ San Felipe, BC Mexico 🇲🇽
Unfortunately, lots of UTV theft in the surrounding areas.
