How Long Does It Take
To Break Into Your Car?
More than a million cars are burgled or stolen each year in the UK alone!

To test which cars were most vulnerable, Auto Express magazine asked two locksmiths to break into 50 cars. The survey is bad news for Daewoo Matiz owners - "It was quicker to break in than open it with a key" says the report.
