What is Theft Protection?

Car thieves don't just steal your vehicle, they often steal your identity too, forcing you to deal with all the hassles associated with recovering or replacing your stolen vehicle and your identity. AutoNation permanently installs traceable security codes on various parts of the vehicle and recorded in a database accessible by law enforcement agencies. These codes make vehicles less desirable to professional car thieves. At no additional cost, identity theft coverage is automatically provided with the Theft Protection Program.
