How do I avoid car break-ins?

What's the best way to prevent car break-ins? My neighborhood isn't crime ridden, but the next one over has its fair share of car theft and vehicle break-ins.

Answer
“To avoid car break-ins, don’t leave valuables in your car. At the very least, make sure nothing of value is visible to passersby.
Always lock your car and roll up the windows, as well—no matter where the vehicle is parked or how long you plan to be away. As an additional failsafe, you may want to consider installing a high-quality anti-theft system.
We hope it never happens—but should you accidentally leave items in your car and they’re stolen, your homeowners or renters insurance may help cover your losses. Damage to your vehicle, however, falls under comprehensive coverage, so long as you’ve added this to your car insurance policy.
If you’re worried about the car itself being stolen, this too is covered by comprehensive insurance. Check your policy to make sure you have it, and add it if you don’t. The Jerry app makes it easy to ensure you have the coverage you need at a price you can afford. Jerry will generate competitive quotes from top providers in less than a minute. No long forms. No calling around. No hard work. Just savings!”
