Maruti 800 is the easiest car to break-in. I don’t think professional burglars have personal liking towards any car. They will steal whatever is in major demand in black market. This could be either the car itself or its spare parts.

You know something thieves are more clever than Car manufacturers as they employ people from their design team so any car can be stolen[clap][lol]

^^ This shows why at check posts, police are more stringent towards UVs than sedans.

Had a quick conversation with a thieve after the theft of my Maruti 800. Even though he was behind the bars, his expressions were calm and had no feeling of regret whatsoever. He stated that they have a single master key for old vehicles. Apart from Maruti, Mahindra Bolero, Scorpio and Jeeps are the soft targets. Since I have experienced a theft, a strong advice to all: Do ensure to install atleast basic security systems. Or in fact, changing all the locks of older cars isn't a bad idea either.
