I've often wondered if / when car-pilfering hoodlums would target take-outs and trailheads. Don't most ppl leave their llaves in their rigs whilst hiking, riding, paddling, touring, etc? I do, almost always. They're hidden, but still on the rig and find-able with a halfass search.
A hoodlum with some initiative could prolly open a Subie dealership after a weekend in the hills. Good thing car-stealing criminals - at least the type who target beater subies - rarely boast such go-get-em initiative.
Glad you got your car back.
