    older tacomas are really easy to get into and steal. the new generations are easy to get into, but harder to steal. the average thief will have a hard time since the keys are chipped so they cant just punch out the ignition with a screwdriver. When I bought my truck I asked the salesmen about alarm/how hard these are to steal and he told me that they moved all the neccessary wiring needed to steal it deeper into the dash so the thief would have to take apart the dash to get to them. But a professional thief can steal anything, so a tacomas not safe, but they would rather use their expertise to steal higher end vehicles worth more. I remember ive seen a few posts on here from guys who got their tacomas stolen. I remember one was really nice, red, lifted and on 37's. I do get a bit concerned that any dealer can just make an exact copy of my key with just my vin #, that means if you piss someone off at a dealer or they really like your truck they can just make your key and they got your address from their computers, free truck for them. Also, you can never forget about tow trucks, they can steal ANYTHING in under a minute.
