As mentioned the Mercedes C Class is the most stolen vehicle in the UK (with the E-Class in fourth place).
The reasons that Mercedes are targeted for theft are quite clear- they are desirable, luxurious vehicles and command a premium price.


Organised car theft gangs have a number of sophisticated techniques to counteract any factory fitted security in more modern vehicles.


‘Relay theft’ has become a particularly popular method, due to the speedy and stealth nature of the technique.
If you’re not familiar with how Relay Theft works, it is a non-invasive keyless theft technique using basic equipment that can be easily sourced and purchased on the internet.
Thieves use a basic radio transmitter to break in to the car by over riding the locking mechanism.
Cars most at risk are those parked on driveways, as thieves can literally ‘relay’ the signal from the keys inside the home to the vehicle due to the close proximity.


The ridiculously simplistic method is quick and effective, and can be done without breaking in to the vehicle or drawing any attention to the perpetrator.
To give a numerical indication of how effective this is for thieves, 85,000 cars were stolen in 2017 and 70 per cent of these were without the car keys being taken first.

Although theft techniques for Mercedes models are becoming a lot more sophisticated, quicker and effective, the good news is that car trackers for Mercedes (and all makes/models) are the absolute best protection currently available.

This is why insurance companies are now asking so many motorists to have one installed. The fact is, they really do work.
