I checked online and the civic's premium was only $20 more for 6 months than the altima. So I think it will be $110-125 a month when I buy one since everyone likes to steal stuff from them. I'm thinking of not putting tints, getting wheel locks, lo jack and alarm with ignition disable.

I'll still put wheel locks on them to show I mean business.

You wouldn't believe what my dad does to his accord.
He has alarm, key w/ chip inside, lo jack, and puts a club on the steering wheel. LOL

Haha, they're prolly just laugh at you for being a fool, they need the rims on to dump the car and it's not like they're stealing dx brakes.

Get a boot if you're looking to scare people, but the crx guy with the boot had his stolen anyway.

Anyway, you're best shot at not having it stolen is the fact that is has no desirable parts on it.

I leave my doors unlocked because at most inside the car someone could steal my $10 cd player and doors unlocked = windows/door not messed up, and if they're looking to steal the car doors unlocked = please pop my hood and see my 8 valve engine.

SVOboy, you think a lot like my Grandpa. He always said they would just break things if they had to and it probably would even slow them down much by locking the doors.

My gramma leaves her house and her car open. Heck, everyone around their does.

Anyway, I've picked up that attitude from a lot of CRX people on honda-tech. I've seen cars get stolen out of garages guarded by dogs, cars with boots stolen, cars with no wheels, 20 kill switches, murderously loud alarms, everything.

My best defense is having nothing worth stealing.

Same here; I never lock my doors. I even had a TV in my back seat for about 6 months one time. It was broken and I couldn't even get someone to steal it. I saw a good bumper sticker once. "This car is protected by poverty, nothing worth stealing."
