headerKeyless cars are one of the main targets for thieves using the most sophisticated technology to get away with your car.

This means that your Land Rover is at risk when it comes to thieves stealing your vehicle.

According to figures that were released by insurance company NFU Mutual, Land Rover Defenders are a real target.

This is because Land Rover have stopped making these specific vehicles and manufacturers have ended production.

A whopping total of £1.8 million was claimed for Defenders that were stolen in the UK last year.

 

How does this affect me?

If you’re driving a Land Rover your car could be a target and police are urging people to have trackers fitted.

He said: “Criminal gangs often target particular vehicles when demand increases and the Land Rover Defender is a popular vehicle all around the globe.

Not surprisingly, since they've been discontinued, the Defender has risen to the top of the car thief's hit list, with the northeast, southwest and the midlands reported to be where the highest number of insurance claims are being made.

Owners of Defenders tend to live in rural areas, so well-lit parking isn’t always possible, making it vital that people ensure they take ample security measures.

He also said that a tracking device won’t stop a car being stolen, but it can significantly increase the chance of police locating and returning a vehicle to its owners, he urged them to get a tracker.
