My wife's car was stolen

    ... Friday night/early Saturday.

    We paid it off two months ago. Considered lowering the coverage, but decided the $60 in savings annually wasn't worth the trouble it would've caused.

    2004 Chevy Trailblazer.

    Friday night we ran out to get some dinner, pulled the 'Lil Monkey's car seat out of the Trailblazer to put it in my car. I didn't lock it back up. We're usually on top of that. Anyways ...

    From what I understand, if it's not found within the first 72 hours, it's probably a lost cause. Got about 28 hours left.

    What's the best advice you have for us?

    Sadly, start shopping for cars.

    I'm so sorry to hear this, BB. That sucks. To be fair, cars that are locked do get stolen. So don't blame yourself.

    Wasn't me. Beyond that, I'm little help. It sucks but insurance should cover most of it.

    I had a Honda Civic stolen about a decade ago, and it was recovered about 70 miles away, and two days later, when the cops arrested the kids who stole it. I wound up driving it for another eight years.

    Keep receipts if they do arrest the person that stole it. The court will make them pay it as part of restitution.

    That's good info, 93. I'm sure these assholes don't have a day job at Bank of America, but when they collect that welfare check or win the Mega Millions, I'll get some cash back.

    What's scary is the ad for a 2004 Trailblazer running on my copy of this page.

    No, but if it was high schoolers, their parents might.
